On This Date in Minnesota History: August 25

August 25, 1970 – A bomb scare in the fourth inning at Met Stadium delayed the Boston Red Sox vs Minn. Twins game 43 minutes on this date.

A crowd of 17,697 evacuated the stands after an announcement over the public address system stated that a telephoned warning had been received that a bomb was due to go off. The evacuation was orderly and without panic with about 2,000 fans, players, police and vendors gathered in the center-field. The rest milled about in the parking lot. The bomb was supposed to go off at 10:30 PM, so after a 27 minute wait, the game was resumed at 10:57 PM.

If you are interested in finding out more about your family history in Minnesota, I specialize in researching  genealogical and historical records in Minn. and western Wis., including:
census records,  birth records,  death certificates, obits, grave site photos, ship passenger lists, marriage records and declarations of intent/naturalization records.  I will visit locations to research local history and county records, as well as take photos. Quick turnaround on MHS records.  Both short searches and family history reports.
