Twins show hard-hat solidarity with Morneau
TORONTO (AP) -- Justin Morneau was welcomed back by his Minnesota Twins teammates with a hard-hatted show of solidarity.
The three other members of Morneau's batting practice group -- Jason Kubel, Joe Mauer and Jim Thome -- all joined Morneau in wearing helmets instead of soft caps as they took their cuts before Friday's opener against the Toronto Blue Jays.
"If Morny does it, they all do it," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "They're a tight-knit group."
