Vikings' Kyle Rudolph and wife get to know the Twins – because they're having some

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph was at Target Field Monday night to throw out the first pitch as the Twins opened a series with the World Champion Kansas City Royals.

Rudolph was joined by his wife Jordan and some of his Vikings teammates as they made a big announcement.

Rudolph's Twins are due during October. With any luck that will be as he and the Vikings are battling to defend their NFC North Division Championship from last year.

Rudolph, 26, is entering his fifth season with the Vikings. He has 22 career touchdown catches including five last season.

As FOX Sports North points out, this time as it was Rudolph's time to throw the ball, his catcher is Twins first baseman Joe Mauer – a father of twin girls himself.

Here's a behind-the-scenes video of the event.
