Alex and Chris Olmanson are finalists in unwanted Target Field spruce tree video competition

Last year at Target Field, there were enough complaints from batters that the Twins have decided to remove the spruce trees in center field.  Wayzata residents Alex and Chris Olmanson are one of five finalists in a video contest to win one of those spruce trees.

Chris on the left and Alex on the right. Submitted photo.
The boys have a backyard baseball field, and their video is about convincing Twins fans that it would be natural for the unwanted spruce tree at Target Field to be planted there.

The Olmanson brothers are 2010 graduates of Wayzata High School.  Chris is a freshman at Boston College, Alex at University of Denver. Chris and Alex also played PWYBA travel baseball since 4th grade.

Good luck Chris and Alex!
