MINNEAPOLIS -- What? No dull, beige Teflon roof? No cement-hard green carpet? No Hefty bag for a right-field fence? And they dare call this a major league ballpark?
Well, yes. And a damn good one at that. After 29 years of indoor baseball and after years of arguing over the proper amount the public should pay to build a facility for one of the richest families in sports, Minnesota finally has a new outdoor stadium. The Twins play their home opener at Target Field on Monday.
