Finding Minnesota: Target Field

Even with more than 90 losses for three straight seasons, the Minnesota Twins have averaged more than 30,000 fans a game since Target Field opened in 2010. The ballpark itself is clearly part of the draw. “I love the architecture,” Jessi Oeltjen of Spring Valley said. “I’m a design buff, so just the architecture, the design, the layout. Once you get inside, there is not a bad seat in the house.”

Twins Blog: Staying In The Sport

Baseball has many players. I don’t mean just those on the field. There are coaches, hundreds of employees who work front office and dozens groom the field. There are also the people who work in the stadium, the vendors, reporters, TV crews, merchandise sellers, fans, reporters. You get the idea. One of those guys who’s “a part of the sport” is Gordy Jones. He’s worn many hats throughout his career: a newspaper writer, blogger, photographer and most recently, children’s author. “Baseball is my passion,” Jones said. “I love kids and I like to do as many things as I can. I’m having more fun now than I’ve ever had in my life.”
