Hammond Stadium History

It's all sunshine and Major League Baseball when it comes to Hammond Stadium, one of the best places around to find a sneak preview of the season before it begins. There is nothing quite like being there watching your favorite team as they look to round into form heading into the start of the regular season, particularly when it's a talented team like the Twins. Hammond Stadium has been the spring training venue for the Twins since all the way back when it opened in 1991, and it must have been a lucky charm as the Twins went on to win the World Series later that year under the leadership of Kirby Puckett.

And ever since then, fans have been pouring into the stands to see the Twins do their thing, a tradition that isn't likely to change any time in the near future. There has never been a better time to put down the remote and make it out to see the Twins in action. But the field is more than just a place where MLB legends are made, as it's a great way to escape the winter for a day of sunshine and baseball that you won't soon forget.

The MLB Experience

Dating all the back to the early days of the Olympics and chariot racing, people have been pouring in by the thousands for spectator sports, and that's not something likely to change any time in the near future. Things have changed a bit these days, of course, but there are still some amazing sporting events that need to be seen up close and personal. Year in and year out, one of the best leagues out there is Major League Baseball, the perfect sport whether you're a die-hard fan or looking to bring your family to a little slice of America's Pastime.

The Team

MLB tickets to see the Twins have been in the sports tickets market since 1961, and it's been a steady stream of impressive seasons ever since then. After some big years in the early days, the Twins won the World Series in 1987 and again in 1991, bringing fans into another exciting era of baseball that you know you'll want to be a part of. This is a roster that is always bursting with some of the stars of both today and tomorrow, which is why it's always a good time to head out to the ballpark to see it all first-hand as the Twins look to rise back up the standings this season. It's never easy in the same division as the Tigers, Royals, Indians and White Sox, but the Twins have plenty of talent and know a thing or two about taking down the favorites.
