From 1982 through 2009 the Minnesota Twins played baseball .... indoors.
But as of this week, the Minnesota Twins are playing baseball outdoors again. As the game should be played. Under the sun. With a breeze blowing across the field.
Target Field opened this week. It seats about 40,000 people. And when you look up you see the sky. Not a roof. Not even a retractable roof. Just sky.
So when the pitches are thrown
And the balls are hit
it will be outdoors. With real grass. And the threat of rain. No more controlled temperature. No more Homer Dome. Baseball is back in the Twin Cities.
I confess I am a Cardinals fan. And a Washington Nationals fan (not many of us around!) But for many years I followed the Twins and still do when I am watching American League teams. Go Twins! Do it this year!
Thanks for stopping by.
