Around about 1980, my father took me to a Minnesota Twins baseball game. One of my dad's friends and her daughter were at the game with us. I don't recall who the Twins were playing that afternoon, but I'm pretty sure they lost. The game was played at what was called "The Met" in Bloomington, Minnesota. The Mall of America is there now (in fact, in the amusement park area of the mall, there is a plaque indicating the exact location where home plate used to be). In 1982, the Twins moved to the Metrodome and I was witness to quite a few good games there in the early 90's (I would go on the Winona State bus to games with my brother, Mike). After a while, though, one grows tired of watching games indoors, so count me happy that plans are underway to return Twins baseball to the great outdoors in 2010.
