In 2010, major league baseball in Minnesota heads outdoors for the first time in nearly two decades—and at one of the finest baseball facilities anywhere. Target Field explores the Minnesota Twins’ long journey to getting a new ballpark and celebrates the groundbreaking achievements of its design and construction. With first-hand insight from the designers, engineers, workers, and team executives who made it all happen, the book gives an insider’s tour of the features and amenities that fans will enjoy for generations. Target Field brings to life the smells of real grass and mustard-slathered hot dogs, the sounds of the ball hitting the bat and the roar of the crowd, and the sights of a glorious new home for the Minnesota Twins.

Steve Berg attended his first Twins game at the old Met Stadium in 1962, and over the years he has poked around two dozen major league ballparks across the country. Raised in Fargo, North Dakota, Berg went on to pursue a career in journalism, including a 20-year stint at the Minneapolis Star Tribune. He is now a writer and consultant on urban design issues, and his stories have appeared in the Los Angeles Times, Mpls.St.Paul Magazine, and, among other publications. Berg and his wife, Dixie, live in downtown Minneapolis.
