The Minnesota Twins will pay homage to Prince during Monday game at Target Field against the Cleveland Indians.

The plan, per a team release:

"As a tribute to the late Minnesota icon, the Twins will hold a moment of silence during the pregame ceremony, play Prince music throughout the game and infuse the graphics with Prince’s signature color; purple. In addition, Prince’s tour DJ Dudley D will play music pregame. Fans are encouraged to wear purple in remembrance of this Minnesota icon."

The Twins and G0 96.3 had about 3,500 Prince fans attend a "Purple Rain" viewing party at Target Field Station on Saturday night. Prince was also honored by the Minnesota Wild with a pregame tribute prior to their playoff game against the Dallas Stars on Sunday, along with the song "Let's Go Crazy" after every goal the Wild scored.
