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.

St. Peter has noticed the increase in club teams, American Legion teams, and other summer teams that players can choose to play from based on skill level. However, he points out that all this separation from school to club teams makes players lose sight of the importance of their local team and community.
