During the Major League Baseball playoffs, join the the Dakota County Historical Society for the "Discovering Minnesota Baseball" series. Our second program will be 'Town Ball Parks of Minnesota,' presented by author Todd Mueller.
Border to border, Minnesota has over three hundred town ball (amateur) baseball teams, more than any other state in the country. Town Ball Parks of Minnesota takes the reader on a tour of the state's most revered ballparks, ranging from a multi-million dollar complex in the Twin cities to a rural field at the end of a dirt road - arguably the most remote ballpark in the state. This presentation will explore some of Todd's favorite ballparks as he recounts his journey from visiting each park to the writing of his book.
Todd Mueller is a St. Paul native who, as a youngster, wore a Minnesota Twins uniform with block lettering ironed on by his mother. His number seven was a tribute to his favorite Twin, centerfielder Lenny Green. Todd's career was in communications and marketing, most recently as a marketing executive at a top twenty Minnesota company. He resides in a suburb of St. Paul. This is Todd's first book, which had 1,200 copies purchased by the Minnesota Twins to give to their season ticket holders.
