A New Scoreboard and Tasty Food Welcome The Minnesota Twins Home For 2023
Making plans for this year’s Minnesota Twins Pride Night? Mark your calendars for Friday, June 16 when our Major League Baseball club takes on the Detroit Tigers.
With the home opener looming tomorrow, expect more from your hometown Twins during the 2023 season.
That begins with new uniforms and logos. Minnie and Paul get a slight makeover, as does the team’s script and a new “Northstar” alternative logo. If you’ve been meaning to update your Twins wardrobe, this is the year to do it.
Target Field has been mildly updated over the years since its opening in 2010. However, the biggest change at the ballpark is above left field with a brand-new scoreboard. Called “Scoreboard 2.0,” a set of new video scoreboards and digital displays that add new interactive and creative elements giving Target Field a more advanced look and feel.
That update includes the updated “Minny and Paul” celebration sign above center field with modifications that add the old “Win! Twins!” script within the sign. The right field tower adds a revolving baseball medallion and the TC logo capping off the external ballpark updates.
Every season welcomes new fan friendly features that are designed to engage with everyone in attendance at the ballgame. Creator’s Corner also gives BIPOC vendors an opportunity to become part of the ballpark experience behind right field. They offer goods that you may never find at any baseball venue anywhere!
While these features are great, we always come for the food and drink. For 2023, the Twins, along with their hospitality and retail partner Delaware North added nine new food vendors on the ballpark’s main concourse, as well as seven new restaurants and bars.
“We’ve got some great new partnerships,” said Pete Spike, the General Manager of Delaware North’s Target Field operations, “and we’re super excited.”
Some of these new places to eat are native to Minnesota. Those new food vendors include Official Fried Chicken, Union Hmong Kitchen, Soul Bowl, Jonny Pops, Mrs. Parker Donut Peach Cobbler, and T-Rex Cookie. You can also get new specialties, such as loaded baked potatoes, Bahn Mi sandwiches, and Conchinita Sliders.
Restauranteur and purveyor of Original Fried Chicken Jared Brewington took his staple of the Currie Food Hall in Downtown Minneapolis and ported it over to the main concourse between right and center field. His fried chicken, tenders, and sandwiches can be easily purchased by using the MLB Ballpark app or at one of the kiosks at that location. In fact, you can expect a lot of these new vendors to appear on the MLB Ballpark app while you make your purchase from your smartphone device at your seat.
A reminder that Opening Day is April 7 with defending world champion Houston Astros visiting Target Field. And, get your tickets to the Twins Pride Night on June 16 with the Detroit Tigers!
