Just in time for the All-Star Game, Puckett Place and Carew Drive get new locations in Minneapolis.

The Minnesota Twins and the city of Minneapolis have found new locations for the commemorative street names next to Target Field.

The streets were originally next to the Metrodome, where the Twins played until 2010.

Second Avenue North, from Seventh Street North to Sixth Street North, will now bear the commemorative name Rod Carew Drive. This stretch includes the corner on the ballpark's plaza where a statue of the 18-time All-Star now stands.

Seventh Street North, from just east of 10th Street North to Second Avenue North will have the commemorative name Kirby Puckett Place.
