The September 27 cover of Sports Illustrated magazine featured a photo of Minnesota Twins’ slugger Jim Thome and a fantastic view of the beautiful new Target Field with the Minneapolis skyline in the background.
Thome was hitting a home run during the third inning of the Twins versus Rangers game on September 4 when this image was shot. It was the result of a collaboration between Marilyn Indahl and Sports Illustrated photographer Tom Dahlin. Tom positioned Marilyn in just the right spot and instructed her when to fire the camera. She carried out her assignment to perfection and the result has been lauded as one of the best covers of the year for the magazine.
