The Twins at the Met captures the rich and colorful history of Minnesota Twins baseball at Metropolitan Stadium.
Long before Target Field, and long before the Dome, there was the Met - Metropolitan Stadium in Bloomington, the initial home ballpark for the Minnesota Twins. It was Minnesota's first taste of Major League Baseball in the great outdoors, and for 21 seasons, was complete with Hall of Fame performances, vivid characters and unpredictable weather.
Through new interviews with legendary Twins players and staff, the book is packed with fond recollections and candid comments on the Met Stadium era. From Bob Allison to tailgaters, Bombo Rivera to the bomb scare and Rich Reese to the Beatles, the history is told by those who were there.

According to my mom, this book was the hit of the holiday season. She said my dad and my brothers pored over it, enjoying all the photos, memories shared by former Twin's players and facts about Met Stadium. It brought back a lot of great memories, not only about the Met, but about the Twins, particular games, and individual players. I mainly chose this book as an afterthought, since I had made a trip to Cooperstown over the summer with my dad and my son, and I enclosed a few photos from the trip. Anyway, it turned out to be a terrific gift, one that I would highly recommend if you know a Twin's fan who ever frequented the Met.
