The University of Minnesota's baseball team will play all of its Big Ten home games in the 2011 season at Target Field.

Minnesota will open Big Ten play on Friday, Apr. 1 at 1:05 p.m. with a doubleheader against Purdue.

Ticket information for the 12 games at Target Field will be released jointly by the Twins and the university at a later date.

Minnesota was originally supposed to play 31 homes games in the Metrodome this season before the roof collapsed.

The Gophers rescheduled the Dairy Queen Classic (Mar. 4-6) in Tucson, Ariz. at the Kino Complex. Minnesota scheduled a three-game series against Gonzaga at Sacramento, Calif. on Mar. 11-13 in place of a Metrodome tournament that originally included Butler, Gonzaga and Illinois.

Other schedule changes have been caused by the collapse of the Metrodome roof:

The Gophers canceled their originally scheduled games against Washington State on Mar. 3, Hamline (Mar. 9), two-game series against North Dakota State (Mar. 22-23) and the two-game series against Cal-State Bakersfield (Mar. 29-30).

Minnesota also switched its contract with Cal Poly and will now travel to San Luis Obispo, Calif. to play the Mustangs on Mar. 25-27. Cal Poly is scheduled to face Minnesota in Minneapolis on Mar. 17-19, 2012. Minnesota's two-game series with Kansas State, which was originally scheduled for Apr. 5-6, has been pushed back to the 2012 season.

The Gophers are also scheduled to play three midweek games at Siebert Field this season. Minnesota will face St. Thomas on Wednesday, Apr. 13 at 3:05 p.m., South Dakota State on Wednesday, Apr. 20 at 3:05 p.m. and North Dakota State on Tuesday, May 17 at 6:35 p.m.
