MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Kevin Garnett will throw out the ceremonial first pitch for the Minnesota Twins at their home opener next month.

The Twins announced Tuesday their plans to celebrate the beginning of the 2015 season at their game the afternoon of April 13 against the defending American League champion Kansas City Royals. The Twins play on the road for a week, starting April 6.

Garnett was reacquired by the Minnesota Timberwolves, the NBA team across the street, last month. Garnett is a friend of Twins right fielder Torii Hunter, who also recently returned to his original Minnesota team after several years elsewhere.

All fans in attendance at Target Field for the home opener will receive a Twins hooded sweat shirt.
