Outdoor Baseball Returns Today

10,421 days ago, the Twins lost to Kansas City 5-2 at Met Stadium, and the era of outdoor baseball in Minnesota came to an end.

Larry Gura threw a complete-game four-hitter for the Royals. Pete Mackanin drove in the only Twins runs with a homer; it was his last major-league home run. Gary Gaetti and Tim Laudner were in the starting lineup for the Twins that day; Kent Hrbek was getting a day off. 15,900 people watched the Twins leave Met Stadium for the last time.

Ten thousand days later, the Rat, Buck-Ninety, and Herbie are our heroes - and the Twins are once again playing counts-in-the-standings Minnesota baseball outside. It's nice to be back outdoors.

This Afternoon's weather: Cloudy. Chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the middle 60's. Chance of rain delays and grounds crew interruptions. Chance of ironic grumbling in bleachers. 100% chance of happiness.
