First Target Field reviews: “Incredible,” “mall-like”

The Minnesota Twins‘ new Target Field held a baseball game on Saturday — albeit with college teams, since the Twins are still at spring training — which means lots of people chiming in with their first impressions:

  • Jay Weiner of MinnPost says that it’s easy to get there by public transit, the concession stands feel like you’re in a mall, and it’s not too cold to play baseball outside in Minnesota. And it could be good for the Vikings’ stadium push if fans get new-stadium fever, but bad if they notice how much more money the Vikes’ stadium would cost.
  • The Downtown Journal, which actually snuck in a couple of weeks ago, notes the myriad sculpture (including 1.25:1 scale statues of Rod Carew, Harmon Killebrew, and Kirby Puckett), the five full-service restaurants, and a roof deck by the top of the left-field foul pole with a “10-foot-long gas fire pit.”
  • Sid Hartman, predictably, called it “unbelievable” and “fantastic.”
  • The Associated Press reports that a Twins spokesman says fans are describing it as “incredible.” And he’d know, right?
