FORT MYERS, FLA. - Twins single-game tickets went on sale to the general public over the weekend, and the demand was "a bit muted compared to the first few years at Target Field," team President Dave St. Peter said Sunday.

For instance, plenty of tickets for Opening Day against Detroit and a Fourth of July series with the New York Yankees remained on sale on the team's website as of Sunday. Similar games sold out quickly in the first three seasons of Target Field.

Still, the Twins sold 50,000 tickets on Saturday, St. Peter said, and have moved more than 1.8 million for the season. They remain on pace, St. Peter said, for the equivalent of 19,000 season tickets sold.

"We remain confident we'll continue to be one of the best-drawing teams in baseball," St. Peter said.

The Twins drew 2.77 million fans to Target Field in 2012, ranking 12th in the majors, after drawing 3.17 million (fourth) in 2011 and 3.22 million (sixth) in 2010. They drew 2.42 million in 2009, their final year in the Metrodome.
