If it’s baseball, it’s gotta be green these days.

In honor of Earth Day later this week, the Twins announced today that they have awarded GreenMark the contract to provide sustainability consulting and environmental sports marketing for the Twins and their new ballpark, Target Field.

GreenMark will work with the Twins to “create and execute a sustainability vision and programs that will bring the Twins to the forefront of environmentalism in sports,” all for the new ballpark’s opening next spring.
 
GreenMark is led by former Hennepin County Commissioner and DFL leader Mark Andrew.
