Named after one of America's largest retailers, Target Field opened in 2010 as the new home of the Minnesota Twins. Built at a cost approaching $530 million, Target Field replaces the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome. Located in the downtown Warehouse District, Target Field is an open-air grass stadium, marking the first time the Twins will play outdoor games since 1981.
The park has medium-deep dimensions left to right: 339 feet/377/411/365/328. Although it does offer a short porch in right center (365 feet), it has a higher than average wall to prevent cheap home runs.
Target Field in Minneapolis appears to play slightly in the pitcher’s favour. ESPN ranks Target Stadium #19 offensively. In 2010, Target Stadium surrendered a total of 8.78 runs per game for both teams (16th highest in MLB). Coors Field surrendered the most runs (10.59).
