We here at the WCCO.com Twins Blog are naturally big baseball fans, so we always look forward to the All-Star Game. All the more so this season because the Mid-Summer Classic is being held at Target Field. One of the joys of baseball’s annual honor for the best in the game, is that fans get to play a significant role in selecting who gets play in the game.
A couple weeks ago, Tracy and I were privileged enough to go somewhere in Target Field where few people have been. We also talked with Clyde Doepner, the Twins curator and perhaps the biggest Twins fan of all time. Oh, and we brought a couple cameras. Enjoy.
Peter Nelson and I had the pleasure of eating our way through Target Field’s new food tasting event. In keeping with the baseball theme, here’s a line up of our favorites …
It might not seem like it, but the Twins are better now than last season. They will end up with three or four more wins. Baby steps. If my calculations are correct they will be contending for the division title in seven to eight years … give or take six years. Remember the 1992-2001 dry spell?
Kevin Youkilis was in town today to play the Twins. He’s batting second and wearing a new pair of Sox. The Youkilis trade is likely to be the first of many before the trade deadline on July 31st at 5pm (CST).

MLB wanted to do something different this year with the season opener. It was a game to be played hours in the future against the Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics while exposing MLB Baseball to new fans a half a world away.
My girlfriend and I are on a mini vacation from our regular lives and working on a baseball reconnaissance mission.
Seven days, three major league stadiums in the Midwest. It may sound like a dream trip for any baseball fan. Your vote could help one Twin Cities couple hit the road.
There’s a good reason why Harmon Killebrew’s statue is located where it’s at on the Target Field Plaza.
I’ve been a Twins fan my entire life. There is no team that I’ve followed more closely. In fact there is no other thing in life, that I have no control over, that drastically affects my daily mood. Don’t believe me? Ask my girlfriend how the evening after the Twins lost to the Yankees in Game 2 of the ALDS went.
I need your assistance. Tomorrow is the one day that I can not JUST be a Twins fan. That’s kinda hard for me.
Today’s Twins Spring Training “B” game in Fort Myers against Pittsburgh is probably as exciting as “B” games are going to get.
