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.

    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
    • sounds like draw length is too long
    • Wax all the string except where the serving is as the wax can get under it and cause it to slip   You should be able to tell the serving because the string will be thicker. Serving is just a thin string wrapped around you bow string. Will be around your peep sight around your d loop   If all else fails just go to your local archery shop and ask them for some pointer about waxing and other general bow maintenance that you should be doing hope some of this info helps though good luck!
