Diamond Awards a hit for neurological research and care

For the second time in three years, Mike Redmond received the Bob Allison Award, given to the Twins player who exhibits the most determination, hustle, tenacity, competitive spirit, and leadership.

About 500 people attended the third annual Diamond Awards on January 24‚ helping to raise more than $520‚000 for research and care focused on ataxia‚ muscular dystrophy‚ Parkinson’s‚ and ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) at the University of Minnesota. Event guests mingled with Minnesota baseball greats‚ bid on baseball memorabilia at a silent auction‚ and attended a televised awards dinner honoring Minnesota Twins players.
