The 1965 Minnesota Twins, a Major League Baseball team, won their first pennant and advanced to the World Series to face the Los Angeles Dodgers. During the 1960's, the Twins, named after twin cities Minneapolis and St. Paul, had recently moved to Minnesota from Washington (Senators). The pennant success helped to create a foothold and local support in the area, where they still play to this day. The 1965 Twins won 102 games and advanced to the World Series, before losing in seven games to the Dodgers.
