POST-CONCERT Re-Sodding

 

Target Field

Target Field is home to Major League Baseball’s Minnesota Twins, the sixth stadium serving the team, and the third in Minnesota. Located in the Warehouse District of the city, the first game played in the park was in April 2010.

Following an August 2014 concert by Paul McCartney, Graff’s Turf provided new sod in the outfield for the baseball stadium.
