Target Field flags flown at half-staff

MINNEAPOLIS -- The flags at Target Field and all Major League ballparks were flown at half-staff on Friday night to honor four Americans slain in an attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya earlier this week.

The three flagpoles in right field -- which feature the flags of Hennepin County, the United States and Prisoners of War and Twins Territory -- all had their flags at half-staff.

Baseball Commissioner Allan H. "Bud" Selig requested all clubs honor those killed through sunset on Sept. 16 to support President Barack Obama's directive for all government buildings.

Killed in the attack on Tuesday were the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, as well as former Navy SEALs Glen A. Doherty and Tyrone S. Woods and Air Force veteran Sean Smith.
