Sunday morning, Hartman, 94, hosted a live broadcast of "Sports Huddle with Sid and Dave" outside of Target Field, the Twins said.

The first 10,000 adults got a ceramic coffee mug featuring Hartman quotes throughout his career. Fans who purchased a special "Sid Hartman Day" ticket package also got a bobblehead, WCCO reports.

The Twins are looking to sweep the Mariners Sunday afternoon after a 4-3 win Saturday night and 5-4 win Friday.
