Baseball comes to Target Field for the first time in 2014 this afternoon against the Oakland Athletics. Opening Day is one of my favorite ‘holidays.’ The Twins are 3-3 after their first road trip of the season. Here are some pieces of information you’ll want to know if you’re heading to today’s game.

  • GAME TIME:  3:10 pm CDT.
  • STARTING PITCHING:  MIN: Correia (0-0, 3.00 ERA). OAK: Kazmir (1-0, 0.00 ERA).
  • RADIO:  AM 1390 ‘The Fan.’
  • TV:  Fox Sports North (Charter 28/824).
  • TICKETS:  Yes, they are still available.
  • FORECAST: Mostly Cloudy with a temperature at game time of 55˚, slight chance of a stray shower.
  • BREAKFAST ON THE PLAZA:  Free ‘Ballpark Breakfast’ from 6 am to 9 am on 7th Street.

This could cause some entry delays. All bags, including women’s purses, will continue to be subject to inspection at every gate.
