Step Inside: Target Field – Home of the Minnesota Twins

Home of the Minnesota Twins

Located in the downtown Warehouse District of Minneapolis, Target Field has been the home of the Minnesota Twins since 2010. It is a fully open-air stadium that offers impressive views of the city. It replaced the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, the previous home of the Twins, which was also shared by the Minnesota Vikings and University of Minnesota football teams. The team’s original logo, titled “Minnie and Paul,” overlooks the field from above the center field bleachers.

Target Field History

Target Field was designed by Populous, an architecture firm that also designed Pittsburgh’s PNC Park, Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore, and Oracle Park in San Francisco. While a fully outdoor ballpark replacing a dome was met with a bit of concern, focus groups ultimately swayed the planners, as they said a dome stadium doesn’t provide the best atmosphere for watching baseball. Target, which is based in Minneapolis, purchased the naming rights in 2008.

The stadium opened for the start of the 2010 regular season and, by the 2011 season, the Twins had added more renovations, including a scoreboard in right-center field, the “Twins Tower” next to the scoreboard, free Wi-Fi service, more heaters throughout the stadium, and better concessions. Four years after opening, Target Field was the site of the 2014 MLB All-Star Game.

It has hosted numerous concerts, including Paul McCartney, Zac Brown Band, Luke Bryan, The Eagles, The Killers, and more. The largest crowd in Target Field history was for a Kenny Chesney concert. The stadium has also been used for football games, soccer matches, and the 2022 NHL Winter Classic.
