TARGET FIELD, Minneapolis - The Minnesota Twins didn’t mess around when creating Target Field. The Twins new stadium has already received some big time accolades in its inaugural season, such as the Greenest Stadium in all of MLB and the best venue in North American sports (via ESPN the Magazine). Those honors are just the tip of the iceberg.
The fan experience is centered exactly where it should be focused: the baseball game. From every seat in the stadium, from the concourses behind the seating and even at the concession stands, the diamond is the focal point. No gimmicks, no in-stadium areas dedicated to activities other than the game, just a stadium that offers plenty of methods to enhance your viewing of the game.
And by enhance, I mean food and drinks galore. If you ask anyone about their first (or second, or third, or fourth and so on) game at Target Field, within seconds they tell you about the food they ate. From burritos to Cuban sandwiches to local favorite Kramarczuk’s polish sausages (and plenty more, believe me) the fare is worth writing about. Twice. Maybe three times.
But that’s just the beginning.
The biggest upgrade from the old Metrodome is the view of the field. Every fan has an exponentially better view of the field than they did in similar seats at the Dome. EVERY ONE. No more turning your neck to see the pitch, no more whiplash inducing jerks of the head to watch a home run fly out of the park.
Nope, just a cozy, comfortable, beautiful ballpark to watch the Minnesota Twins.
