Minnesota Twins Night Game
This was my first experience of a night game at Target Field. I have attended two games already but they were both day games.

I show a great parking spot, a preview of Hrbek’s for dining and some shots of the ball park.
The unfortunate thing is that in the first game back after the all star break, the Chicago White Sox beat the home team 8-7. Jim Thome was the winning run at the plate with two out in the bottom of the ninth but he could not stick it to his former team on this occasion. The Twins let numerous opportunities pass them by in a game of terrible pitching and questionable defense. This is not the usual fundamentally sound Twins team that we have grown accustomed to seeing over the past two decades.
We joined Stacy and Aaron for dinner at Hrbek’s as they were celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary. They had lower level seats behind home plate while we were in row three of the third deck just beyond first base. The third deck really are pretty good seats. If possible though, sit down the third base line and get the view of the downtown Minneapolis skyline.
