MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL, Minn. – The Minnesota Twins announced today that the team’s final Opening Day in the Metrodome on Monday, April 6 (7:10 p.m.) versus the Seattle Mariners is sold out. As of today, only a limited number of single and obstructed view tickets remain for the Twins 49th annual Opening Day. This will be the team’s final home opener at the Metrodome as they move to Target Field in 2010.

A limited number of obstructed view tickets in the Upper Club seating area – regularly priced at $22 – are available for $11 while supplies last.

The Twins have now sold out six of the seven home openers since the 2002 season. The last Opening Day sellout prior to 2002 was April 10, 1992, when 53,031 fans flocked to the Metrodome to watch Minnesota host the Toronto Blue Jays. Metrodome seating capacity for baseball was reduced prior to the 1996 season. The current official capacity for baseball at the Metrodome is 46,632.

Good seats remain available for the balance of the Twins season opening homestand against the Mariners (April 7 – 9).

Fans can still secure Target Field priority by purchasing one of several flexible and affordable season ticket plans for the 2009 season. Twins season, group and single game tickets are available online at www.twinsbaseball.com or by calling (612) 33-TWINS or (800) 33-TWINS. Tickets can also be purchased in person at the Twins’ Metrodome box office or at the Twins Pro Shops in Apple Valley, Minnetonka or Roseville.
