    AL Central played the NL Central this year, so you are going to have to wait at least 3 more seasons.

    I can't believe they are having an outdoor stadium in Minnesota. That will make for some cold April games.

    Re: Target Field Photos

    The only thing I am worried about is how much our homefield advantage is affected. Teams hated playing in the Metrodome because they would lose the ball in the lights. Having an outdoor stadium will be a great change of pace and I'm looking forward to seeing at Target Field.

    They played outdoors at the old Met from the early 60s to the early 80s, when the dome was built. Only issue will be if the Twins make it to the World Series, since the season now can push into November.

    Correct. There is a marker where home plate was in the amusement park. Apparently I have to aim my rep gun elsewhere.

    There's also one red seat bolted to the wall where Harmon Killebrew's 520' home run landed. (That was the longest homer in the history of the Met)

    Edit: Found a pic

    3 hour drive for me. Closest Major League Park. It will be fun to go to some games.

    It isn't Camp Snoopy any more? When did that happen? Guess that shows how long it has been since I was in the MOA. Dang, I can't even remember when.
