Minnesota Twin Jim Thome Accepts Award Created by Supplier Crystal D
Jim Thome, member of the Minnesota Twins, was recognized for his milestone home run number 600 on August 18. During the recognition ceremony Thome accepted an award that was created by Crystal D, its Starburst Award.
The recognition ceremony took place at Target Field just before a game against the New York Yankees in Minneapolis, Minn. In addition to receiving a crystal award, Thome also received a commemorative embroidered jersey with the number 600, a vacation voucher and a fishing lure.
The Twins organization chose the Starburst Award because it features six crystal stars, each star representing 100 career homeruns. The award is an exclusive Crystal D design, and additional information can be found here.
"The Twins did a fantastic job recognizing Thome. They chose a stunning symbolic award-one star for each 100 homeruns-and they honored him with lifestyle gifts that fit his personal life, like the fishing vacation voucher, jersey and lure," said Bridget Dahlgren, marketing manager for Crystal D. "We are so honored to be part of this wonderful occasion in the life of one of our very own Twins players."
