The opening of Target Field will not only mark a new era of the Minnesota Twins, it will launch the 50th season of Twins baseball. The Minnesota Twins, in conjunction with the Minnesota Ballpark Authority, have unveiled their plans to recognize every Twins player since the inaugural season of 1961 on the Twins Tradition Wall, a dramatic piece of artwork that will be located on Target Plaza.
In addition, fans will have the opportunity to have their own names inscribed upon the wall alongside the legends that have made up Twins baseball. The collective recognition of players and fans on the Tradition Wall represents a history rich in baseball and the fans who have always been beside their team.
"The Twins Tradition Wall will unite teams and fans in a permanent recognition for generations to visit, to reminisce and to celebrate their lasting place in Twins Territory," said Dave St. Peter, Twins president. "The team's first half-century tells a story of a club that is as much about its fans as it is about its players. The cornerstone reflection of that custom will be the Twins Tradition Wall on Target Plaza."
The Twins Tradition Wall will be comprised of team rosters from every team alongside eight eight-foot-tall glass panels, etched with a limited number of fan tributes. Fans and families can have their names etched alongside the legends for $245. For an additional $80, they can purchase a commemorative glass replica that displays their inscription.
Proceeds from the Tradition Wall will help the Minnesota Ballpark Authority maintain and enhance Target Plaza, a pedestrian bridge and public gathering space that will welcome visitors as they approach the ballpark.
The Tradition Wall on Target Plaza encompasses the memories left behind at the Twins' previous ballparks but celebrates the continuation of the traditions at Target Field. To create your personal legacy on the Twins Tradition Wall, or to learn more, click here.
