Ladies and Gentlemen, today is the home opener for the Minnesota Twins baseball team. We are playing the Detroit Tigers, I know I have lots of friends in Michigan, so no hard feelings, but I am rooting for the Twins! I have to say my favorite sport is football because it is just like what I like to play at home, chase and wrestle with the only difference being that I get nothing but entertainment for playing and football players get lots and lots of money for playing. The other sport I like is baseball because of the ball, I love to chase dogs that have a ball, so baseball is kind of like that.
We have a fairly new stadium for our Twins baseball team, Target Field, which is is also an outdoor stadium. Luckily, the ground is heated as there will still be snow around for the opener this year. The record low for opening day was set in 1962 with 34 degrees and this year we have a shot at breaking that record – we would rather not but what can we do. I am not sure that an outdoor stadium is the right choice for Minnesota but I do hear that when the weather is nice it is a wonderful place. As always in this country, NO DOGS ALLOWED is their policy so
I have not been there myself.
I have seen photos and mom has actually been to the stadium. We have some very famous players that have fancy statues outside of the stadium…I decided to sneak myself into some photos to get a better look! Did you see me???
The baseball season is long and hard, so I won’t be posting about it unless something big happens. The Twins are a Minnesota team, so chances are we will be holding up last place once again this year, but being an optimist I am hoping for a good team. Gramma still has her Homer Hankies from the World Series winners back in 1987 and 1991. Sure would be fun to have a winning team for once. Remember to enlarge the photos just click on them.
For now, Play Ball, and stay warm out there – the forecast is for high temps around freezing so the fans will need to be all bundled up! This post is no April Fool!
