MINNEAPOLIS — A Twins playoff tradition will return in 2019, as the team prepares to face the New York Yankees in the American League Division Series.

In an article on its website Monday, the Star Tribune announced the return of the Homer Hanky ahead of the ALDS. The article suggested the 2019 version will come with a twist, hinting that the hanky may not be white this year.

The Homer Hanky became a trademark of the Twins' victorious World Series seasons in 1987 and 1991, with fans waving the white hankies in the stands at the Metrodome. New versions of the Homer Hanky also returned during Twins playoff appearances in the 2000s.
