TwinsFest Comes to Brooklyn Center’s Crescent Cove
Twins outfielder Max Kepler and his mom, Kathy, stopped by Crescent Cove on Friday to talk baseball. The families staying at the children’s hospice and respite home in Brooklyn Center couldn’t attend TwinsFest. So the Keplers brought the event to them.
“It’s a very humbling experience,” said Kepler. “You can tell the kids are very comfortable here.”
Crescent Cove’s history is actually linked very closely to some legendary Minnesota Twins. Harmon Killebrew started advocating for a children’s hospice back in the 1990s and his foundation is still very involved with Crescent Cove.
“It really impacts that people say and see that these people and this mission matter so much that they have the hearts of beloved baseball players and legends,” said Katie Lindenfelser, with Crescent Cove.
