Twins fans have been waiting all season for this.

"I have one from every year going back to 1987," said Arne Espeseth, from New Brighton.

The 2020 Homer Hankies went on sale at 10 a.m. at Target Field, Tuesday. Fans hope to be waving them all the way through October.

"It's been a challenging year but when they started playing in July, my wife and I said, 'Okay. Life has come back to normal a little bit,'" said Espeseth.

"We miss coming down for games, so it was fun to come down here and get the hankies," said Alex Hubbell, from Minneapolis.

"I'm buying eight," said season-ticket holder Emily Clausman.

"I figured I need extras for friends and family. Plus, I need one for each hand," she said.

A spokesperson for the Minnesota Twins said if the team moves on to the next series, they are considering a safe way to hold some sort of watch party for a limited number of Twins fans inside the stadium at Target Field.
