Eye on Photos: Minnesota's beautiful Target Field
Never been to Target Field? Here are some pictures from in and around the stadium.
MINNEAPOLIS - With the 2014 All-Star Game taking place in Minnesota's beautiful Target Field, I figured it was fitting to give it the Eye on Photos treatment. So I walked around the stadium -- inside and out -- and took some pictures. For those who have never been here, it's a decent tour to see what it's like.
First, though, this deserves its own space. I walked up to approximately where I believe Giancarlo Stanton's 510-foot moonshot during the Home Run Derby landed. Here's the view:
That was almost to the top of the stadium. Unreal power.
Anyway, the rest are below -- click on each individual picture to view a full-size version. These were all taken by myself on Tuesday, July 15.

| Divisional championship banners line the outside.
||Twins baseball, including greats like Harmon Killebrew and Tony Oliva.|
|The Kent Hrbek World Series championship statue.||Great touch here with the list of hometown Twins.|
|For those unaware, the Target Center (home to the NBA's Timberwolves) is right next door.|| Nice view from the center-field camera well.
|Your instructions on the self-serve beer vendor.||The "Great Clips" section in right field has some excellent views.|
|One thing I really love is the old-school logo in center, to the right of the scoreboard.||The view from behind home plate, five hours until gametime.|
