Perkins' Family & Friends Celebrate All-Star Save

Created: 07/16/2014 9:22 PM KSTP.com

Twins closer Glen Perkins bought a suite for Tuesday's All-Star Game, knowing he had so many family and friends who wanted to come.

It was a good thing the suite was full because Perkins became the first player in All-Star Game history to record a save in his hometown and home team ballpark.

It was such a rich storyline that someone scripting it couldn't have done better.
