In Game

In its first year of operation, Target Field was ranked as the number one baseball stadium experience in North America by ESPN The Magazine, and with good reason. The Twins put a lot of time and effort into creating arguably the best ballpark in the country, and it shows.  

The fan-friendly park features many amenities and extras that will have any baseball fan wanting to come back soon. The stadium features excellent sightlines, comfortable seating, and tons of great food options. It even has a warming shelter, which is a great addition on colder days.

Target Field also has many quirks as well, making it an interesting as well as comfortable stadium. These quirks include knotholes – small holes around the park so fans without tickets can peek through and watch the game – as well as a bonfire area in the left-field Budweiser Porch, the only of its kind in the MLB.

You’ll have an incredible time taking in a game at Target Field, which is one of the premier baseball stadiums in the entire country.

Things to check out

Twins Team Store

If you want to pick up a souvenir from your trip to the Twin Cities, then there is no better place to do so than the Twins Team Store. Here you’ll find a wide variety of Twins gear ranging from hats to t-shirts to jerseys and much more.

Limestone

Target Field prominently features Minnesota limestone as a design component. All around the stadium you’ll see limestone features, which give Target Field a unique look.

Minnie and Paul

Proudly showcased in the center field is the original Twins logo featuring Minnie and Paul. Throughout the game, they light up and shake hands depending upon what’s happening. When the Twins score (aside from a home run) the strobe lights trace the border signifying a player running around the bases; each strikeout the corners flash to portray the strike zone; after a home run, the strobe lights flash, Minnie and Paul shake hands, and the Mississippi River flows. There're a couple of others so pay attention to Minnie and Paul throughout the game.

Fight Songs

  1. Let's Go Crazy

    This hit by Prince is played after Twins home runs

    Dearly beloved
    We are gathered here today
    To get through this thing called lifeElectric word life
    It means forever and that’s a mighty long time
    But I’m here to tell you
    There’s something else
    The afterworld

    A world of never ending happiness
    You can always see the sun, day or night

    So when you call up that shrink in Beverly Hills
    You know the one – Dr Everything’ll Be Alright
    Instead of asking him how much of your time is left
    Ask him how much of your mind, baby

    ‘Cause in this life
    Things are much harder than in the afterworld
    In this life
    You’re on your own

    And if the elevator tries to bring you down
    Go crazy – punch a higher floor

    If you don’t like the world you’re living in
    Take a look around you
    At least you got friends

    You see I called my old lady
    For a friendly word
    She picked up the phone
    Dropped it on the floor
    Uh uh was all I heard

    Are we gonna let the elevator
    Bring us down
    Oh, no Let’s Go!

    Let’s go crazy
    Let’s get nuts
    Let’s look for the purple banana
    ‘Til they put us in the truck, let’s go!

    We’re all excited
    But we don’t know why
    Maybe it’s cause
    We’re all gonna die

    And when we do (When we do)
    What’s it all for (What’s it all for)
    U better live now
    Before the grim reaper come knocking on your door

    Tell me, are we gonna let the elevator bring us down
    Oh, no let’s go!

    Let’s go crazy
    Let’s get nuts
    Look for the purple banana
    ‘Til they put us in the truck, let’s go!

    C’mon baby
    Let’s get nuts
    Yeah

    Are we gonna let the elevator bring us down
    Oh, no let’s go!
    Go crazy

    I said let’s go crazy (Go crazy)
    Let’s go, let’s go
    Go
    Let’s go

    Dr. Everything’ll be alright
    Will make everything go wrong
    Pills and thrills and dafodills will kill
    Hang tough children

    He’s coming
    He’s coming
    Coming

    Take me away!

  2. Beautiful Day

    Made popular by U2, this song is played after wins in Target Field

    The heart is a bloom
    Shoots up through the stony ground
    There’s no room
    No space to rent in this town

    You’re out of luck
    And the reason that you had to care
    The traffic is stuck
    And you’re not moving anywhere

    You thought you’d found a friend
    To take you out of this place
    Someone you could lend a hand
    In return for grace

    It’s a beautiful day
    Sky falls, you feel like
    It’s a beautiful day
    Don’t let it get away

    You’re on the road
    But you’ve got no destination
    You’re in the mud
    In the maze of her imagination

    You love this town
    Even if that doesn’t ring true
    You’ve been all over
    And it’s been all over you

    It’s a beautiful day
    Don’t let it get away
    It’s a beautiful day

    Touch me
    Take me to that other place
    Teach me
    I know I’m not a hopeless case

    See the world in green and blue
    See China right in front of you
    See the canyons broken by cloud
    See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
    See the Bedouin fires at night
    See the oil fields at first light
    And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth
    After the flood all the colors came out

    It was a beautiful day
    Don’t let it get away
    Beautiful day

    Touch me
    Take me to that other place
    Reach me
    I know I’m not a hopeless case

    What you don’t have you don’t need it now
    What you don’t know you can feel it somehow
    What you don’t have you don’t need it now
    Don’t need it now
    Was a beautiful day

  3. We’re Gonna Win Twins
