The Fans of Target Field

I know that a lot of my readers will be going to target field this year, and many of them for the first time. Whether you will be visting Target Field or not, I still thought I should introduce you to a few fans who attend games frequently at Target Field. They are all good friends of mine, and each took the time to let me interview them for this entry. Hopefully if you watch/listen to the interviews, then you will become familiar with them. I also hope that in watching/listening to the interviews that you will learn more about Target Field and the game of baseball itself.

The first interviewee is Ben Lacher. I havn’t mentioned Ben too much on this blog yet, so I will quickly tell you a little bit about him. We ran into each other a few times at Target Field in 2012 before we actually met each other and knew who each other was. On Memorial Day (5-28-12) we had a brief conversation about autographs as we were standing next to the A’s dugout in batting practice. Later in the season, at a Tigers vs. Twins game on September 28th, we had another short conversation near the Tigers dugout after the game. However, we had no memory of each other from Memorial Day. I wasn’t expecting to, but a few months later (by complete chance) we met on Twitter… and the rest was history! We chat daily, and let me tell you, he is a baseball super fan! He and his dad have season tickets and attend Target Field frequently. Here is the interview:

The next interviewee is Sean Bigness. I have known Sean for three months now and have mentioned Sean a few times in my two entries from TwinsFest, so I will go right ahead with sharing our interview. Sean will be getting mentioned more frequently as 2013 progresses. Here is the interview:

Interviewee number three is none other than Mateo Fischer. Most of my readers are already familiar with Mateo because we went to two Twins games together in 2012 and we also met up at Twins Fest 2013. In all likelihood we will be seeing each other a lot at Target Field this year. Here is the interview:

Last but not least, is the final interviewee, The one and only Tony Voda. Tony is another household name on A Piece of The Game, so I’m confident that most of you (the readers) know who Tony is. However, I will leave you with one note. As Tony ballhawks this year, he will also be donating money to – the National Alliance on Mental Illness. If you are interested in donating with him, don’t hesitate to contact Tony. It is an excellent cause! Here is the interview:

Like I said at the beginning of this entry, I hope these interviews helped introduce you to Ben, Sean, Mateo and Tony. I also hope that you will come out to Target Field this year and enjoy some Twins baseball! If you’re planning to visit Target Field then don’t hesitate to let me know. I’d love to come out and watch a game of baseball with you!

On a closing note, I would like to thank everyone who I interviewed. Ben, Sean, Mateo and Tony, thank you for your time and for letting me interview you. I’ll be seeing you all at Target Field this season!

    It is an honor to be part of your blog! I do lot think that I am alone in saying that you are on your way to great things with this blog. I cannot wait to go to Target Field in just under 7 days, I’m sure I’ll see you a little later in the season.

    Now to listen to some of the interviews…

      Thank you so much Tony, Your words are always very encouraging! You know how I said that I most likely won’t be going to opening day? Well, I think that I am up to a 75% chance of being able to attend. Hopefully see you there!
