Tickets go on sale Dec. 8 and cost $20 for adults and $10 for children 14 and younger.
By the time TwinsFest rolls around, center field will still be undergoing a massive makeover as the Twins roll out an improved fan experience in time for the start of the 2016 season.
The upper level of center field will feature a pub-style space called “Minnie & Paul’s.” It’ll be open to all fans while providing drink rails, a variety of seating options and food from local vendors.
Beneath Minnie & Paul’s, in the Mezzanine level will be “CATCH,” creatively named after Kirby Puckett’s famous catch against the Braves in the 1991 World Series. The all-inclusive area will be available on a game-by-game basis for about 120 season-ticket holders.
