It's a race of the feet and mind for the T-Mobile All-Star FanFest Ticket Hunt! Beginning at 11:00 a.m. (CT) Wednesday, May 21, Twin Cities baseball enthusiasts can follow the official Twitter handles of @AllStarGame and @Twins for a series of clues and passwords to be released tweet-by-tweet for the opportunity to win a T-Mobile All-Star FanFest Golden Ticket Package. Each clue will lead participants to one of six locations throughout the Twin Cities.

Additionally, two of the locations will feature prize packages with all of the above, plus a T-Mobile device with a year of service. At each location, second, third, fourth and fifth runner-ups will receive a pair of T-Mobile All-Star FanFest tickets.
For those fans who are just as enthusiastic, but unable to physically participate in the T-Mobile All-Star FanFest Ticket Hunt, they will be eligible to win a prize package, including a T-Mobile device with a year of service, by retweeting a message shared by @AllStarGame later in the day.
