Starting at 10 a.m. Sunday, September 9th, May will take on Fortnite gamer Jordan Marcel “BasicallyIDoWrk” Cunningham. They will play for an hour before an audience at Target Field with the gameplay displayed on the big screens.
Your purchase will also include a reserved seat for 1:10 pm Twins vs. Royals game to follow the live streaming session. Plus, the first 500 fans to purchase through this special ticket package will receive an exclusive Twins Fortday with Trevor May t-shirt.
According to MLB.com, May is an eSports ambassador for Luminosity Gaming. He says "eSports represents a large population of people who aren't athletes but like to compete. It's something that's been laughed off by traditional sports, but I think there's a lot of opportunities there for kids to make a career out of it or to get scholarships for college. It gives them a chance to follow their dream."
