The Minnesota Twins took the home field for the first time this season on Monday. While the final score may have been tough for the hometown crowd (the Twins lost to the Kansas City Royals 12-3), it was a beautiful opening day.

Returning fan favorites, a new coach, and warm sunshine all worked together to fill the stands at Target Field.
