Will Twins have Fans in the Stands at Target Field?
Baking in the sun behind first base with a cold drink in my hand and not enough sun screen on my head. Shivering in upper left field bleachers with a steady light drizzle falling tor the whole game. Watching a Twins game at Target Field can take on different feels. What will it be like in 2021? Will fans even be allowed into the ballpark?
Team president Dave St. Peter told the Star Tribune, "We believe we'll have fans in Target Field at some point, and we're hopeful about getting there by April 8...we're going to be delivering to the governor's office and the department of health our updated readiness plan for the 2021 season."
The Saint Paul Saints put together a plan last summer that permitted 1,500 fans into each home game at CHS Field. Each of several pods "had it own entrance, concession areas, and restrooms, and circulation between pods prohibited," according to the article. "Fans were required to wear masks unless eating or drinking, and small groups were separated in a checkerboard pattern."
The Star Tribune also reports that spring training should start on time on February 17 after Major League Baseball players rejected a proposal from the league and owners to delay the start of the season.
