In one of the coldest Opening Day games in Twins history, Minnesota and Detroit locked up at Target Field Monday. The 2013 season is underway.
Hall of famer Rod Carew raised the U.S. flag before the game.
Here's a look at the ballpark on a frosty April 1, inning-by-inning:
Watching the game under heat lamps was a popular option.
Trying to stay warm in the Twins bullpen.
Left field, 13th row, third deck. Possibly the coldest spot in the stadium with winds at 10 mph. Just a handful of fans on the top row from foul pole to foul pole.
It's at least 20 degrees warmer in the sun-splashed Budweiser zone.
Right field. Crowd in shade dwindling, but hearty.
Third deck gelato stand? Very lonely.
Center field ... Sunny, but still parka and blanket territory
Hot beverage line in right field, third deck. Still brisk.
