Twins fans head downtown despite quieter season

An empty Target Field played host to the Twins' Wild Card round playoff game Tuesday.

Though it wasn’t the outcome they were hoping for, Twins fans cheered on the team Tuesday, and many plan to return Wednesday.

It’s only a couple dozen die-hard fans at Target Field, but the enthusiasm wasn’t lacking as the group waived their Homer Hankies.

“This place should be electric. There should be 35,000 people here, and the place should be going nuts. It’s just kinda dead,” said fan Isaac Cloos.

Fans watched from afar, but the fans that came downtown were happy, settling for a little wet grass and a big screen to watch the Twins play it out.   

“I feel like this is a good year for us, honestly. We’ve been playing really well so I feel like I’m excited, but I think in the context of the year, it’s kind of hard to be excited,” another fan said.

Despite Tuesday’s loss, the Twins give it another shot Wednesday.
