It's Opening Day in lots of places today, including Progressive Field in Cleveland and the Rogers Centre in Toronto. Same for Wrigley Field, Citizens Bank Park, Busch Stadium, Petco Park and Safeco Field. Tomorrow, the Yankees get their World Series rings as they kick off year two in The House that George & Jeter built.
But the big one is today at 4 p.m. on ESPN when the Red Sox help the Twins take it outdoors in Minnesota for the first time in 29 years in the inaugural regular-season game at Target Field (above).
The Minneapolis Star-Tribune put together a special section on baseball's newest park and the Web presentation is worth your reading time. Great stories, great graphics. They also have a breaking news blog with minute-by-minute updates on the festivities.
Park looks great. Sure looks like it might be cold come October and (gasp!) November. But we'll deal with that when we have to. Good for the folks in Minnesota to get a chance to finally be outside. Good riddance, Metrodome!
