Player’s Complaints Lead To Removal Of Pine Trees
After just one season Target Field is getting a makeover. The 14 pine trees that are located beyond the center field wall will be removed. Player’s say they make a bad back drop.
The batters were most affected during day games. Joe Mauer told the Star Tribune that it is one of the worst back drops he had seen. Player’s from many ball clubs including the Twins have expressed concerns.
Twins President Dave St. Peter said, “We’ve contacted the same manufacturer and we’re going to install a new backdrop that will be attached to what you see out there. In essence, it absorbs light and will cut down the glare.
The 14 trees that are coming out will be replanted.
