A week ago, Matt and I took in our first game at Target Field. For those who don't watch a lot of baseball, that's the brand-new Twins stadium. I am biased, because I love Safeco Field . . . so I have to say that Target Field is the second best stadium in the country. Sure, I haven't been to all the stadiums, but both are so awesome that I don't see how they can be topped.
I've got some cool pictures to share!
Okay, so I have to admit that this sign is pretty darn nifty. Also, Target Field was made with some sweet eco-friendly bits and lots of local stone.
I brought my zoom lens and got some decent pictures despite sitting in the outfield. We like sitting out there, but it's not the best for taking pics. This is Cuddyer fouling off a pitch.
Matt diligently kept score.
We really enjoyed the game!
Oh, and a funny story. We got there way early and spent lots of time walking around the stadium. We had just gotten to our seats when Matt took off somewhere. Once I finally caught up, he was chatting with someone who turned out to be a family friend from his hometown! It turns out that the elementary school in town had bought a block of Twins tickets, so I was able to meet a lot of people that watched Matt grow up.
