Target Field in Minneapolis
Target Field is located at 1 Twins Way in Downtown Minneapolis, which is on 3rd Avenue North, between 5th Street North and 7th Street North, in the Warehouse District.
Ground broke on the new Target Field on August 30, 2007, and anticipation has been growing ever since! There was hope at one point to have a retractable roof, but because of the cost, this was unable to happen, as it would have cost around $100 million extra to the already large cost of the stadium. However, Twins ownership did decide to upgrade to have a full roof canopy soffit to help protect the fans from the elements of possible cold/snow/rain that is quite possible during the early and late games of the season. The Target Field seating chart holds 40,000 Twins fans, which is considerably less than the former Twins home, HHH Metrodome, which could hold more than 55,000.
