    Good day for outdoor baseball! Karl-Anthony Towns threw out the first pitch. It's days like this that I don't miss the Metrodome!

    Yes, April 12, 2013 (just checked my StubHub emails). I was in town for a conference. I think I lasted one inning outside.

    Target field is fun, no doubt about it. Crowd looks a little thin on a nfl sunday by the way.

    Bought tickets via Stub Hub for the last game of the season, box seats, 3 rows behind the Twins dugout. Going to enjoy the game with a couple of Kramarczuk's brats and a few Grain Belt Premium brews.
     
    One more time!

    I've been there and it's a nice ballpark but they should have put a retractable roof on it no doubt.

    To be honest it's been 5 yrs now since it opened and truly hasn't been that bad at all.......April is by far the worse month and if they ever go far in the playoffs that will be real choppy too!

    it wouldn't have been justified by the cost; i've typically gone to 7-10 games a year there since its opening and I've only been involved with 1 rainout

    Thanks, tringlomane! What 7 stadiums/ballparks have you been to? My list is pretty short: Metrodome (R.I.P.) and Target Field. I've been invited to join friends to Miller Park, but I'm not a fan of the 6 hour journey to Milwaukee--or the National League.

    Mostly the easiest ones for us currently. The "old" Busch, was before I met my g/f.

    St. Louis (Busch Stadium II and III)
    KC (Kauffman Stadium)...first game vs. Twins
    Chicago (both Wrigley and US Cellular)
    Atlanta (Turner Field)
    Cincinnati (Great American Ballpark)
    Anaheim (Angel Stadium)...this one was during a combo Disneyland/Vegas trip. Great trip, but the game was a bore.

    Nice dude. I did a short stadium tour a couple of summers ago. Hit up 8 stadiums in one season myself.
