Target Field

56 posts in this topic

Anyone else see this yet?

Looks like the Twins have sold naming rights of the new ballpark to Target. The new home for the Twins will be known as Target Field.

Yes, I received an e-mail from the Twins... 25 year commitment from Target for the naming rights. They will also work together on Marketing opportunities throughout the year.

Thats the same email I got.

Pretty predictable partnership, hopefully they do a good job tieing the new ballpark into the downtown area. If done right it would be a pretty cool place.

I don't like it either, but MONEY TALKS.

What would you all name it if you had a choice.

Well, there is already a Target Center and they are probably saving Target Stadium for the new home of the Vikings so there probably aren't many options left besides Target Field or Target Field of Dreams that they could use for their Marketing Campaign.

Well if you all had the chance to name the new Twins ballpark, what would it be.

I was surprised they didn't name it Carl and Eloise Pohlad Stadium but I suppose the Pohlad family wanted the naming right's fees vs it being named after Carl and Eloise Pohlad.

I would have liked if Grain Belt Premium stepped up to get the naming rights.

Just imagine sitting down to watch a game at "Premo Field" with a "Premo" in hand.

SunSetter Diamond, and maybe they could throw in a retractable roof?

Slapping corporate sponsor names on ballparks and stadia has always made me ill. Oh, I know the reasons, but just look at how the turnover in names causes a lack of identity. Astros Field becomes Enron Field becomes Minute Maid Park? Jacobs Field becomes Progressive Field? (with the tackiest of signage simply bolted over the top of the old 'Jacobs' lettering...) C'mon: the San Antonio Spurs play in "SBC Center" and the San Francisco Giants play in "SBC Park"?? THEY'RE NOT EVEN IN THE SAME STATE. Oh, fans like the insider nicknames ('X' or 'Cell'...) but then that company goes belly-up or their scandalous business practices are exposed and we change names again. (I see the Jets and Giants are cozying up to Allianz Insurance and their $30 million, ignoring that company's ties to Nazi Germany... They could have just as well picked 'Taliban Field' or 'Bin Laden Stadium.')

Sheer lunacy. Even though nearly 100 professional teams already play in places that have sold their souls to corporate naming rights (source: ESPN Sports Business web page) and even though I do understand that maybe it will get us that RH power-hitting 3B and a middle reliever or two, I still don't have to like it.

It will be during April baseball. They dropped the ball not putting a retractable roof on it.

    • I apologize if that came out wrong. The idea might very well be the best route to go. It's just that over the past 25 years or so I have seen many attempts to save a dollar that cost a buck and a half to do lol.    Here are my two cents. If you have a slab and you want to pour on top of it while keeping the same footprint that sounds pretty doable and could probably save some money if you don't have to change drain lines, run water, heat runs, electrical etc into the slab.   If you intend to tie into the existing slab and run zones of pex across the joint and have the new and old floors end up at the same elevation it still can be done. Some contractors will not want to mess with tying into and raising the elevation of the slabs and will prefer to start from scratch especially if you as the homeowner want them to warranty the finished product.  The critical thing would be to use enough rebar drilled into the old slab and have enough compaction and sufficient footings to make sure the slabs stay where they are without settling. That would make all kinds of problems with the pex.    Hopefully that response came across better.
    • It'll be interesting to see if the team plays a little harder in front of a different goalie. 
    • Hawg, I'm with you on this one !
    • Check and see if you have a video output on you device. You may be able to record to a digital device.
    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
