Dave St. Peter (@TwinsPrez) is the President of the Minnesota Twins of Major League Baseball. He oversees the team’s day-to-day operations, strategic planning and interaction with Major League Baseball. In addition to his role with the team, St. Peter oversees the franchise’s sister company -- Northern Lights Broadcasting – which includes 96.3 KTWN-FM, the Twins flagship radio affiliate commencing in 2013.

Dave St. Peter feels that the best way a parent can be a part of their child's experience is simply through support. From what St. Peter has learned as a parent, he's realized thatparents need to let their children have their own unique and personal experiences in sports rather than let it become about the parent.
