Joe Mauer Target Field Home Run Contest

Hey Joe, where you goin with that bunt in your hand? (AP PHOTO)

That’s Twins Baseball recently hit the 50,000 visitor mark since it’s launch in March.  To everyone who has visited the site I say thank you, it’s been fun getting to know some of you.  I thought now would be a good time for the first TTBB Prize Contest.

The opening of Target Field has opened the door to a plethora of trivia questions to look back on.  Who was the first person to hit a home run in Target Field?  Who was the first person to hit a home run out into the Clark Griswold Christmas Tree Farm in center field?  With all these fun little tidbits of useless human knowledge, we are still awaiting one of the most important questions, when will Joe Mauer hit his first Target Field home run?

In the comment section below, leave your prediction of what game he will hit his first Target Field home run.  The person with the exact game or closest to it wiill receive a “Viva La Stache” t-shirt.

Leave your answer in the comment section with …Date and Opponent.

If you guess what inning of that game you will receive another prize that is TBD.

Thanks again for stopping by.

[Contest is void after the 2010 regular season.]

    Mauer did hit a home run at Target Field in one of the exhibition games. It went into the Christmas trees in center field. So we know he can do it.

    Wednesday, August 18, 2010, against the Tighty Whities is when I am predicting his first regular-season Target Field home run.

    Of course he can do it, it boggles the mind that he hasn’t. I’m going with tomorrow.

    Mauer’s been on quite the streak lately. It’s going to happen sooner rather than later. I’ll go with this Saturday, August 14th against the A’s.

    August 17th, 8th inning go ahead bomb against the sox, at which point Ozzie’s love for the Twins will reach a breaking point, he will snap, punch AJ for calling an outside fastball to Joe on his way to ripping off his uniform and walking to Twins dugout to become a bench coach for Gardy

    I posted first and got the pitcher. How about overlooking that last comment?

  22. Baroclinity on August 19, 2010 at 1:32 am

    I am going to go with good sportsmanship here and say we both win, he posted first and got the pitcher, I posted later but was closer by an inning.

  23. Max on August 19, 2010 at 4:47 pm

    I’m cool with that too.
