Minnesota Twins Release 2010 Schedule; Red Sox first visitors to Target Field

The Twins have released next year's schedule on their official website. The Boston Red Sox will be the first regular-season visitors to the brand-new Target Field, opening the stadium with a 3:10pm game on Monday, April 12.  The Sox will also play 12:10 games on Wednesday and Thursday of that week, likely a concession to the possibility of cold night-time temperatures. 

Cleveland and Kansas City are also scheduled for April visits to Minnesota.  Milwaukee will be the first National League team to play in the park, May 21-23; the team's return trip to Wisconsin will be June 22-24.  Atlanta and Colorado also visit  (June 11-13 and 15-17, respectively), while the Twins go to Philadelphia (June 18-20) and the Mets (June 25-27).

The Twins open the year April 5, at Los Angeles, then play at Chicago before returning home for the grand opening of Target Field. The traditional season-ending series against an AL Central opponent has been scrapped; the Twins finish the year with a four-game series against Toronto.
