New Home For The Twins

Excitement was in the air Friday evening when I left work. The sidewalks in the warehouse district of downtown Minneapolis were more crowded than usual. The Minnesota Twins were playing their first (exhibition) game in their new stadium, Target Field.

The lampposts had banners with different team members on each, and the words "5o Seasons". Yes, 1961 was the first year the Twins played at the old Met Stadium where the Mall of America now stands. Although I'm not really a baseball fan, I'll try to see a game one of these days. It would be fun to walk over to the stadium some summer night after work and sit outside with the sun going down.
