Target Field is an open-air baseball stadium located in the historic warehouse district of downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota, with a seating capacity of 38,544. It has been the home ballpark of Major League Baseball’s (MLB) Minnesota Twins since its opening in 2010. The construction of Target Field broke ground on August 30th, 2007, and it officially opened on April 12th, 2010, when the Twins hosted the Boston Red Sox.

The design for Target Field employs more than 100,000 square feet of limestone from southwest Minnesota. It also boasts heated viewing areas and a heated field. The stadium does not have a roof, but there is a canopy above the top deck. Target Field features one of the closest seating bowls to the playing field in all Major League Baseball.

The Minnesota Twins were originally founded in 1901 as the Washington Senators and were one of the American League’s eight original charter franchises. In 1961, after 61 years in Washington D.C., the team relocated to Minnesota and became known as the Twins.
