Target Field with a retractable roof might be nice for April 1 openers


Yesterday’s Minnesota Twins’ home opener was played in record cold at Target Field in downtown Minneapolis. Sunshine drenched the field, but sharp, cold winds from the Canadian north kept the wind chill at game-time around 20 degrees. Actual air temperatures were hovering around the 30 degree mark when the first pitch was thrown.

That broke the 34 degree game-time temperature recorded in 1962 for the coldest Twins’ game ever played.
