The opening of Target field had a dramatic impact on the Twins attendance figures in 2010.
The organization that finished 23rd in 2008 and 15th in 2009 sold out for the season this past year.
All told, they sold 3,223,640 tickets in 2010, an average of 39,798 per game (100.7 percent attendance).
This is a dramatic increase, especially considering the fact that the team moved from the climate controlled indoors of the Metrodome's to the sometimes frigid environment (at the beginning and end of the season) of Minnesota's outdoors.
Eventually, heavy snow fall will disrupt a Twins playoff series.
But Minnesota sports fans certainly don't mind the snow.
The Twins are among the most successful smaller market franchises in sports.
Some of that comes from having a patient, but reliable fan base.
