the right scoreboard displays a logo
honoring the late Jacob Wetterling.
The Twins are auctioning 11 of the jerseys, with the proceeds going to the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center.
The Wetterling story is truly tragic and heart-rending, and the impulse to acknowledge it is understandable. The jersey auction even makes that acknowledgement valuable in a tangible way.
The Gophers, Vikings and St. Paul Saints also have Wetterling tributes scheduled. Whether the fundraising aspect is connected to any of them, I don't know.
