Target Field, 1 Twins Way, Minneapolis MN 55403 Google Maps
Target Field was opened in 2010. It is an open air baseball park in downtown Minneapolis. Target Field replaced the indoor multi-purpose Metrodome as home of the Minnesota Twins.
The Metrodome was a huge advantage when a large home crowd was present. The Twins beat the favored St. Louis Cardinals in the 1987 World Series by winning all four games at home.
Target Field is the downtown Minneapolis terminal of the light rail service which connects Minneapolis with the Mall of America in Bloomington. The light rail also stops at both terminals of MSP Airport.
Target Field is a few blocks away from Target Center, home of the National Basket Ball Association Minnesota Timberwolves. There are several adjacent parking garages serving the two facilities.
