The temperature ranged somewhere between the high 60’s and into the 70’s throughout the Minnesota Twins day game victory on Thursday afternoon. It was get-away day for the Kansas City Royals which trigged yet another day game and another lackluster crowd at Target Field.
The smallest crowd in Target Field history. This is the sixth year in the ball park and it still feels fresh in my mind.
The run of day games might affect the amount of people with the ability to play hooky, but a gracious 17,449 is an impressively low number for this early in the season. I know a lot of people don’t care about the Twins anymore after the horribleness of recent years, but I did not think it had fallen to lowest crowds in Target Field history levels.
Minnesota really needs to start winning again. If Minnesotans who always itch for spring and doing anything outside don’t head to Target Field on a perfect day, something is wrong and the only thing to fix the issue is by winning ballgames.
Of course, that is easier said than done. A little bit of winning streak early in the season can get some buts in the seats once again for the Twins.
Folks, just go to the ballpark if you can. It’s really, really nice.
