This season, the Minnesota Twins unveiled their new stadium, Target Field, and fans are talking about more than the views, the food, and the LEED Certification.
They’re talking about accessibility.
Instead of simply adhering to state and federal guidelines, the organization strove to surpass them and give fans with special needs the baseball game and experience they deserve.
Some of the new improvements include:
- Approximately 800 accessible seats at all ticket levels.
- Lower concession counters with Braille and/or large-print signs.
- 1-2 electrical outlet boxes in accessible seating areas.
- Captioning boards for the announcer’s messages and free assisted listening devices.
- All entrances to the ballpark are wheelchair accessible.
- Accessible seating areas do not have obstructions from railings or standing fans.
