About The Minute
The Minute Men were organized in 1954 when the city, business, sports and
civic leaders decided that in order to attract major league baseball, and
football a stadium should be built in Bloomington, Minnesota. The purpose of the
Minute Men is to assist and promote professional sports in the Twin Cities Area,
to sell tickets, advertise and promote special events and to honor and pay
tribute to individuals or teams, who through professional achievement have
brought unusual and significant publicity to themselves and the citizens of the
Twin Cities. The broadened scope of the Minute Men activities includes amateur
sports and charitable donations to other worthy organizations.
