Hrbek offers Mauer 1st base tips in new Twins ad

MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Twins have launched a commercial recalling a memorable Minnesota sports moment.

The always entertaining "This is Twins Territory" campaign continues with a new gem called "First Base Lessons."

The spot recreates the controversial play from the 1991 World Series when Kent Hrbek tagged out Atlanta Braves' outfielder Ron Gant.

The ad is under the guise that Hrbek is teaching new first baseman Joe Mauer the nuances of the position by applying a "tag" on Twins' mascot TC Bear.
