Target Field, the (new) home of the Minnesota Twins MLB club, opened in April of 2010. Until this spring, I had never caught a game at the new ballpark.
This is the 6th ballpark for the franchise, dating back to the Washington Senators’ days with American League Park in 1901.
Target Field currently seats just under 39,000 for baseball.
Located in the warehouse district of Minneapolis, Target Field is a beautiful ballpark, with the exterior constructed out of local limestone. The ballpark is next door to Target Center, and has a light rail station. There are plenty of food and drink choices inside the stadium, with several heated areas of the concourse! I think the Metrodome turned Minnesotans a bit soft; there were no heated areas at Met Stadium.
Since we were there for a promotion, our seats were up in the left field high-rise area. The Twins fell behind early, 6-1, but fought back to make it 6-5 by the eighth inning. Toronto hit a solo homer in the top of the ninth, and the final score was a 7-5 loss for Minnesota.
