Twins Attendance Record Set

The Twins have set their single season attendance record this year.  At over 3.2 million attendees, the record shattered the previous record of just over 3 million set in 1988 – the year after the Twins’ first World Series championship. 

While the team has played exceptionally well this season, the real reason for the record attendance is Target Field.  As stated here earlier, the field is an incredible shrine for an incredible game.  The state has fallen in love with outdoor baseball and with this beautiful stadium, and as such demand for tickets is through the roof (pun not intended). 

I can’t wait to see what it all looks like as the Twins host their first postseason in this gorgeous new home.
