Minnesota Twins Owner Dies Friday, July 19th, 2019 The Minnesota Twins announced today that team owner Jim Pohlad had died today of natural causes. A team spokesman told reporters that funeral arrangements were undecided at this time. It was expected that Pohlad's son would succeed him as owner. Lall Pohlad has been deeply involved in the club's operation in recent years and the transfer of ownership should run smoothly. Fiscally, Pohlad is said to be controlling and tolerant in character. The Whitesox organization would like to wish the family of Mr Jim Pohland all the best wishes and condolences. Losing a member of the twins family is a deep hurt we in the Whitesox organization reach out too and ask if there is anything we can do our door is open. Jim Pohland took over the Twins when his father Carl passed in 2009. Carl had owned the Twins since 1984 and now that his grandson is taking over we wish Lall Pohlad and his family a smooth transition. The Whitesox would like to dedicate the life of Jim Pohland by wearing patches in honor of him during the 7 games the two teams play in the next 11 days. We really look forward to taking all 7 games to honor the entire Pohland family.
