Target Field grand opening

The Minnesota Twins celebrated the official opening of Target Field with a 5-2 victory over the Red Sox, as the franchise star player, Joe Mauer, went 3 for 5. Fortunately, it was mild and sunny. The Twins and their fans will have to get used to adapting to poor atmospheric conditions from now on. See mlb.com. The Red Sox bounced back and won in today's game, 6-3.

Ballpark rankings

Thanks to Jonah Mackey, via Facebook, I had a little fun with an online poll at ESPN, and was surprised that Target Field came in at the top, with 977 first-place votes. The following rankings were done on the spur of the moment, and differ in some cases from my "official" (and rather out-of-date) stadium rankings.

  • 1. Fenway Park
  • 2. Wrigley Field
  • 3. PNC Park
  • 4. AT&T Park

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


Explanation

The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
