Touring Target Field

Even though there hasn't been a real update on Twins Chatter for quite some time (I did, after all, retire from blogging in 2006), there has been a recent uptick in the traffic to this site due to a couple of links floating out there.

Last Wednesday, I was lucky enough to be invited by Shane Nackeru (he of Greet Machine fame and a fellow employee here at the U of M) on a behind-the-scenes tour of Twins' new ballpark, Target Field. Talk about a great opportunity! Naturally, I was thrilled to go along.

The park was spectacular (and it helped inform my season ticket seat selection choice -- look for me in seat 1 of row 8 in section 124 next spring!), but I'm going to let others tell you about it far better than I could. Here are some links of descriptions (which, sadly, was without photographs) for your enjoyment:
