Fla. ran the 15-minute meeting as she stood next to two folding tables filled with deli meats and cheeses salad and fruit"Ever get sick of chicken" she asked the group "What about pork or fish Any other foods you guys would like to see"Back came the suggestions some more serious than others"Cornbread""Mac and cheese""Sweet potato tots"Tacos were mentioned"Softshell tacos" Moran said "And what would you put in that If you eat three tacos would that be sufficient"One of the players mentioned guacamole Moran patiently explained the recent spike in avocado prices"That won’t be something we’ll have until those prices go down" she saidSeveral players nodded sadly The Twins have worked to improve the nutrition of their 175 or so minor leaguers for the past several years The opening of the year-round academy at the team’s spring complex in early 2015 greatly improved eating habits for players at Class A Fort Myers and on the Gulf Coast League TwinsThe new Boca Chica academy in the Dominican Republic which opened in January helps in that regard as wellBut the initiative has taken a noticeable leap forward this season the first since the arrival of chief baseball officer Derek Falvey and general manager Thad LevineFrom the big-league clubhouse on down sodas have been replaced by organic juices and whole milk pizza and burgers have given way to grilled chicken and baked fish Even with A-ballers like the Kernels still limited to road per diems of just $25 hot catered postgame meals are now served both at home and on the road thanks to a new agreement with Sodexo USA and nearby Coe College"It’s fun to walk in the locker room when the game is over and see what they had to eat" Kernels GM Scott Wilson said "There are still teams that travel in here with peanut butter and jelly and are old-school I would say about half of the (16) Midwest League teams do that but the Twins are trying to feed players healthier alternatives"’THE BIGGEST KEY’How much have things changed since the days when Tommy Watkins was making his way through the Twins’ minor league system The Kernels’ first-year manager laughed as he considered the question"Man we used to eat concession stand food especially when we were in E-town" said Watkins whose 12-year playing career from 1998-2009 took him through rookie-level Elizabethton Tenn "We used to go to the concession stand a lot but you don’t see that much anymore At 4:30 every afternoon the food will be here and it’s all good stuff"Although sodas may still be found at times in Watkins’ office as well as that of his coaches the commitment to proper nutrition means even the skipper finds himself policing the clubhouse for snack contraband When even cereal bars from the nearby Quaker Oats plant have been banned in favor of protein bars and shakes you know the Twins are getting serious"The food is the biggest key in just maintaining your body in good shape" slugging first baseman Lewin Diaz said through a translator "Consuming good food and having energy throughout the game is important because it’s a long season It’s a transition going from a short season to a long season so you have to play it smarter and work harder"While Diaz who received a $15 million signing bonus in 2013 has struggled at times with his weight since signing out of the Dominican at age 16 other players from impoverished backgrounds in Latin American countries traditionally send the bulk of their per diems back home to support their families That only led to cheaper fast-food choices and diminished energy levels until this recent change in policyIn addition to keeping these future Twins strong and productive throughout their first 140-game season habits are being ingrained that could carry through the rest of their playing careers After the group session her last in a tour of the Twins’ top four minor league levels Moran met individually with a number of the Kernels to help improve their nutritional habits"I love it" said Lujan a former 35th-round pick out of Westmont College in Santa Barbara Calif "Having good food here helps you out a lot throughout the long season Obviously you don’t want to be putting bad food in your system You’ve got to treat your body like a race car You put good fuel in it it’s going to take care of you If you put bad fuel in it it’s not going to take care of you"Members of the Grand Forks’ Events Center Commission had been told event management firm Spectra was no longer working with the Fargodome which Spectra managed for 12 years before the city of Fargo took the reins in 2016 The commission knew of a consulting agreement Spectra had with the Fargodome that is set to expire in next month But commission leaders recently learned Spectra still has the contract to provide

contract runs through 2020 A third contract Spectra has with the Fargodome for consulting expires June 30 and will not be renewed Sobolik said Swanson told commissioners he had looked at other venue management contracts where the company would have a radius around a venue and agree to not work with other venues in that territory Commissioners have three options moving forward with Spectra Swanson said They could sign the Spectra contract as it stands; make changes to protect the Alerus Center against conflicts of interests and then sign the contract; or scrap the contract and consider other
