Twins Win at Target Field

The Minnesota Twins won their first stadium opener in franchise history Monday when they defeated the Boston Red Sox 5-2 at the new Target Field, Pioneer Press said.

The Twins played their first season in Metropolitan Stadium in 1961, where they lost the opener to the Washington Senators 5-3, Kare 11 said.

In 1982, the Twins moved to the Metrodome where they were defeated by the Seatlle Mariners 11-7, Kare 11 said.

Now in their 50th season, the Twins opened Target Field with a slew of famous former players in attendance, including Harmon Killebrew and Rod Carew, said Kare 11.
