I had a feeling once the Hormel Hall of Fame — “great for lunch, great for dinner, you might be a weiner winner”– was given the boot, no baseball institution was safe.
But “Circle Me, Bert”?
Stand by for the outrage.
Just informed by FSN that there will be no more “Circle Me Bert” and Minnesota Lottery winners for this coming season. I want to thank all the fans that made signs over the past 15+ seasons. Doesn’t mean you can’t still bring signs! Go Twins 👍⚾️

FoxSports North is replacing it with an advertiser tie-in to the lottery.
Bert broke the news! We’re launching a new @mnlottery “Winners Circle” concept so fans at the ballpark AND watching at home can get involved! Signs are still encouraged. Here’s a preview: pic.twitter.com/RbQZCrwpma
