The new Minnesota Twins ballpark, Target Field, has moved the game out of the Metrodome and back into the great Minnesota outdoors!
Fans are loving the beautiful new ballpark and the exciting Minnesota Twins team.
Prominantly displayed at Target Field is the Minnesota Twins logo, a picture of two baseball players shaking hands over a river.
This logo, created by illustrator and cartoonist, Ray Barton, was chosen by former Twins owner Calvin Griffith in 1961. Griffith liked the logo because he felt it represented the region, and the "getting together" of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul.
The beloved drawing of "Paul" and "Minnie" was adopted as the team's official emblem and, a half-century later, a giant replica of the familiar logo looms over center field. The animated sign lights up and makes "Minnie" and "Paul" shake hands when a Twins player hits a home run.
Target Field reflects Minnesota's dynamic blend of urban sophistication and outdoor vitality. The facade of the ballpark consists of Minnesota limestone and a canopy that covers much of the upper deck seating. Target Field features just under 40,000 seats, 18,500 seats in the lower deck, with the main three tier grandstand extending from the right field foul pole to home plate and to the left field foul pole. Between the upper and lower decks are 4,000 club seats, 60 luxury suites and the pressbox.
Most Twins fans will enter the ballpark through Target Plaza, a park-like gathering area located outside the right field entrance gate. This landscaped area features a 1,500 pound bronze glove, player statues of Harmon Killebrew, Rod Carew, and Kirby Puckett; a wall tribute to Minnesota ballparks, and the Metropolitan Stadium flagpole.
