Tuesday, the Minnesota Twins announced the new fan amenities and policies at Target Field for the 2021 season.

With the team's home opener just two days away, the club announced the following:

  • Anyone feeling ill or with a temperature above 100.4 degrees is asked to stay home.
  • Face coverings are required for all fans, except when actively eating or drinking.
  • All guests and staff are required to practice proper social distancing at all times.
  • The Twins are collaborating with MPLS Parking and the city of Minneapolis to provide preferred game day parking in Ramps A and B and the Hawthorne Ramp. Fans can reserve a spot and pay in advance on ParkWhiz.
  • All 2021 tickets will be delivered digitally via the MLB Ballpark app. Fans are encouraged to make sure they have the latest version of the app to ensure smooth access and functionality.
  • Bags aren't allowed in Target Field, with the exception of necessary medical items, diaper bags and small clutch purses (9" by 5" max).
  • Outside food isn't allowed inside Target Field, except for necessary medical supplies. One factory-sealed or empty water bottle 32 oz. or less is permitted.
  • Concessions and merchandise can be ordered for pickup and paid for directly through the MLB Ballpark app thanks to a new partnership with Venuetize. No cash will be accepted at Target Field, only credit, debit and digital wallet payments. Reverse ATMs are available at the park.

The full list of health and safety protocols can be found here.

Additionally, the Twins said fans can use the MLB Ballpark app gaming platform to play both at Target Field or while watching from home. Chances to play Twingo, Pick 3, Risk It, Twins Trivia, and Ask T.C. are all available.

The organization also said Target Field will feature WiFi 6, which is nearly three times faster and has 670 hot spots throughout the ballpark for more efficient digital use.

New spots in the park include the "Gray Duck Deck" in the area adjacent to the left field foul pole, "Jack Daniel's Bar" and "Schneiderman's Lawn" near Gate 34, "Summit Brewing Pub" down the left field line of the club level, and "Truly On Deck" will replace the formerly known Bat & Barrel.

Finally, the new season means new food and beverage options at Target Field. Truly on Deck will feature the famed "Cease and Desist" burger from Blue Door Pub. Returning favorites include Andrew Zimmern's Korean Fried Chicken (available at Town Ball Tavern), Hot Indian Food's Chana Masala (Truly On Deck), Ike's "Tavern" Burger (Truly On Deck), Kramarczuk's Bratwurst and Polish Sausage (Section 101), Loon Café "Pecos River" Red Chili (Halsey's Sausage Haus), Mac's Fish & Chips (Town Ball Tavern), Murray's Steak Sandwich (Truly On Deck), Pizza Luce (Minnie & Paul's), Red Cow 60/40 Burgers (Minnie & Paul's), Red Cow "Ultimate" Burger (Town Ball Tavern), Soul Bowl Mac & Cheese (Truly On Deck) and Tony O's Cuban Sandwich (Truly On Deck).
