Did someone say Twins? Double your pleasure, double your fun, if you’re lucky you’ll see a home run at Target Field.
What makes this stadium unique?
Target Field looks very futuristic from the outside due to the steel canopy surrounding upper deck and limestone facade. Behind Gate 34 in right field is Target Plaza which features statues of former players and owners as well as a “Golden Glove” that commemorates all Twins players to win the award. The glove is a popular photo op for fans. Along the wall facing the ballpark is a wind veil that makes waves and lights up at night. In front are nine topiary baseball bats that light up red to denote the current inning during the game. Fans can’t miss the “Minnie and Paul” logo that stands in center field. The strobe lights around the logo light up corresponding with the play on the field. The best celebration is after a Twins’ home run when Minnie and Paul shake hands, the Mississippi River flows, and the lights all flash.
