When the Twins host the Detroit Tigers at Target Field for the home opener on April 1 they'll likely be playing in chilly spring conditions.
Brian Murphy of the Pioneer Press reports that the Twins were given a chilly rehearsal for the home opener during Sunday's spring training practice in Fort Myers, Florida.
The temperature never climbed out of the mid-40s -- the kind of cold that will cause Floridians to break out their winter jackets.
"We get this day on April 1, we'd be pretty happy," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said.
