Target Field is believed to be a better ballpark than the HHH Metrodome, but I bet many people do not know exactly why Target Field is believed to be better. Here are some of the reasons that prove this is true:
- Less seating capacity (42,000 at Target Field compared to 56,000 for baseball at the HHH Metrodome), so fans are closer to the action and people with visual impairments can see what is going on in the game better than at the Metrodome
- More disabled seating (820 seats at Target Field compared to only 190 at the HHH Metrodome!), which is VERY important!
- *Fewer seats with obstructed views (0 at Target Field compared to 1,392 at the HHH Metrodome), so fans will have a good view of the game no matter where they are sitting
- More restrooms (17 women’s and 17 men’s at Target Field compared to 8 women’s and 8 men’s at the HHH Metrodome). which also is very important!
These are just a few reasons why Target Field will be a better ballpark than the HHH Metrodome. To see more reasons, go to: http://minnesota.twins.mlb.com/min/ballpark/new_banter.jsp?content=comparison

*Although the Twins website says there will be 0 seats with obstructed views, people say there could be a few partially obstructed seats in right field. Fans might not be able to see the entire outfield.
