Twins open 2017 at home for the 2nd time in Target Field history

Author:

With a hopeful future ahead, the Minnesota Twins have announced that their 2017 regular season and home opener at Target Field will be April 3 against the Kansas City Royals.

The only other season the Twins have opened at home while playing at Target Field was in 2013. They started on the road in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015 and this season.

The earliest game ever played at Target Field was the 2013 opener against the Tigers on April 1. They played that day in 35-degree weather with a wind chill closer to 20, but 38,000 fans still watched the game.

Minnesota's interleague opponents in 2017 will include home games against the Brewers, Rockies, Diamondbacks and Padres. They'll play the Brewers, Giants and Dodgers on the road in interleague action.

Season tickets are available for 2017 and fans can visit www.twinsbaseball.com or call 612-375-7454 to buy them.
