The Minnesota Twins will finally be able to welcome a limited number of fans back to Target Field this week, with the home opener scheduled for Thursday, April 8. Ahead of the game, the team unveiled amenities and policies fans can expect to see at the ballpark.

Before anyone attends a game at Target Field, downloading the MLB Ballpark app is a must. If you already have the app, make sure to update it to the latest version. The MLB Ballpark app will be used for digital ticketing, with your digital ticket telling you which gate you should enter based on your seat location. Having the app will also allow all fans to utilize contactless ticket scanning technology.

Having the MLB Ballpark app will also allow fans to order food and drinks and even team merchandise without leaving their seat. Twins fans will be able to open the app, select their desired food and drink or Twins gear, and complete payment via their personal mobile wallet – all from their mobile device. Fans will be notified when their order is ready for pick-up from separate, designated “grab-and-go” stations, making the entire process contactless.

Speaking of mobile devices, fans at Target Field will also get to enjoy WiFi 6. According to TwinsBaseball.com, WiFi 6 is nearly three times faster than the previous iteration available to fans. There will also be 670 hot spots throughout the ballpark, which they say will enable enhanced digital engagement while enjoying the game.

While watching the game is the big draw, the overall experience involves food and drink as well. With that in mind, the Twins have announced these "New Faces in Familiar Places" for the 2021 season:

  • Gray Duck Deck: Originally developed prior to the 2020 season, the “Gray Duck Deck” will make its fan debut in 2021. Located in the area adjacent to the left field foul pole inside Gate 6 (the former Barrio space), this open-air bar will feature signature drinks from the homemade Minnesota brand.
  • Jack Daniel’s Bar and Schneiderman’s Lawn: Another space originally re-designed prior to 2020, the main entrance to Target Field – Gate 34 – will be home to a pair of new spots this season. Jack Daniel’s and the Twins are making it count at the new Jack Daniel’s Bar, complete with signature cocktails featuring the world’s top-selling American whiskey. The 5,600-square-foot Schneiderman’s Lawn provides weather-resistant furniture such as Adirondack chairs, wooden tables and benches, high-top bar tables and swivel chairs.
  • Summit Brewing Pub: Summit, the Twins’ new Hometown Craft Beer sponsor, will introduce fans to the “Summit Brewing Pub.” Located down the left field line of the club level (the former Goose Island Pub space), this space will provide fans with the taste of one of Minnesota’s most beloved craft breweries.
  • Truly On Deck: The formerly named Bat & Barrel will continue providing fans with state-of-the-art video elements and signature food and beverage options, now with the added flavor of Truly Hard Seltzer®.

All fans attending a game at Target Field are reminded that wearing a mask will be required unless in the act of eating or drinking. Also, in order to establish proper physical distancing, capacity for indoor bars and restaurants at Target Field has been modified to meet Minnesota Department of Health and Minneapolis Health Department guidelines, while markers have been placed on drink rails at outdoor bars.
