Yeah man, I got lucky and won tickets to two separate games in April, like 10 rows behind home plate. I'm super excited to go, I was just going to buy whatever the cheapest ticket was this year. I'm so excited for this year's Twins team.
I got a call from a couple friends tonight about trying to be cheap and watch in the B ramp. It didn't work for them, but I'm looking to watch a game there in May when I spend a week at home. Has to beat the **** out of Camden and Nationals Park.
A buddy called me up with a spare ticket to the game on on Friday - the stadium is more awesome than you can imagine in person. Our seats were in section 334ish, but they still were pretty good. The warning track in left field was obstructed from there, but whatever.
- The ceilings in the concourses have heat lamps, so if it's cloudy & cold you can catch the game while staying warm and possibly catch a tan.
- The sign with Minnie & Paul is going to look very cool when a Twin hits a late-inning home run.
- Beer is $7 at concessions. $6.25 at the bars. Don't let this fool you though, after tax + tip we wound up paying more for the beer along the rail. Their liquor shelves looked like they'll be serving any drink imaginable though.
- Be careful if you purchase seeds on a windy day. The guy in front of me had a very different looking shirt after a couple innings.
- No lines to use the restroom.
- The entrance to the firepit is manned by two security guards & requires a passcode/keycard scan to enter. I'm not sure what tickets are required for access to this area.
- There was no point to going to the Metrodome early. On a sunny day you could get to Target Field 2-3 hours early and find plenty to do.
[Edit] The wind was really blowing in from right field on Friday & everything carried well to left. Cuddyer/Young/opposite field Mauer should like this.
