07:24 AM ET 12.03 | While it's not his first hometown, Justin Morneau's adopted pro baseball hometown is without a doubt Minnesota. [Morneau] sounded pretty certain Saturday that he will return to the Twins. Just not necessarily next year. For that matter, not necessarily as a player. "I can't say [it's] unlikely" that he'll wear a Twins uniform again someday, Morneau said during his first public appearance here since being traded to Pittsburgh on Aug. 31. "There's no saying I won't be back in the future. You never know what the opportunity is going to be, whether it's as a player, later, or as a coach, or someone who comes down to spring training. Whatever it is, it's a different chapter, but [Minnesota] is something that will stick with me forever." He proved it Saturday by signing hundreds of autographs at the Fan HQ store at Ridgedale Center.

Considering fist base is occupied by the former catcher, he won't be back as a player.

Kind of a misleading caption, but that's to be expected.

Morneau could be joining his ex-teammate in Colorado Michael Cuddyer.
