Does the Minnesota Twins still wear their regular home jerseys with the current logo?
They are doing this as a tribute to Harmon Killebrew. Since Killebrew's death, the Twins have worn their 1960s throwback jerseys at every home game, and they will continue to do so all year.
EDIT: Yes, it is only for home games for this season. They have not made any changes to their road uniforms (they have two of those; one is gray and the other is dark blue). And the plan is to return to the regular jerseys next year for home games, though they'll probably still wear the throwbacks from time to time.
@Jigokusa: yes, they did go all out. Minnesotans don't do anything half-assed! They have the patch, too. Everyone on the Twins has #3 on his sleeve this year.

what is the better choice Purdue vs Minnesota twins city in undergraduate chemical engineering major?
(To be honest, I'm sure Minnesota's a fine choice, I just happen to be a bit biased. You should really visit both schools and see which one fits you better. Both will have a lot of the advantages big schools can provide, and I'm sure overall you'd be happy with either choice. And while the previous poster is correct, the winters here probably aren't as harsh as in Minnesota, that doesn't mean we don't have our share of 10+ inches of snow days...)
Why did the Minnesota Twins ever leave their old ball park?
It was named the Metropolitan Stadium (and is where the Mall of America is today (a home plate plaque is in the amusement park section of the mall)).
As for why.... it just wasn't large enough for the Vikings who also played there, and since it wasn't viable at the time for the city to have a stadium just for football, the Twins moved too (in 1981). That said though, the Twins will be getting a new park just for themselves in the near future.
The current batting leader is Joe Mauer with a .333
On May 14, the Twins have a home game against the Toronto Blue Jays.
The mascot is the T.C. Bear.
The head coach is Ron Gardenhire
The Twins are in the Central Division in the American League.
