Twins' First Day Of Single-Game Ticket Sales Plagued By Server Problems
Published March 21, 2011
NO SOPHOMORE SLUMP: In Minneapolis, Sid Hartman notes the Twins are "not only the hottest ticket in this area but also in all of major league baseball." They drew more than 3 million fans last year in the first season at Target Field, and Twins President Dave St. Peter said that the club "could exceed that total after selling just shy of 250,000 of the 500,000 tickets available for the entire season since Friday." St. Peter said that "there are still plenty of tickets available for a lot of games, particularly in April, May and September, and that the team is not sold out for the season." He added that "for the most part, Opening Day on April 8 against Oakland is sold out, but like last year, as game days approach some additional tickets will be released." St. Peter: "We will have a release in the next couple of weeks about the plan for standing room in 2011. Those seats have not been put out in the system yet" (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 3/21).
