Continued: Twins’ losses even extend to ticket sales

“If they continue to fall, I think that would be sad,” Kelley said of the Twins’ attendance figures, “but it might have more to do with broader things going on in society.”

Former House Speaker Steve Sviggum, who was also a major political player in the Target Field subsidy package, said that without a new ballpark, the Pohlad family might have sold the team and its new owners might have moved it out of Minnesota.

“Would we have been driving to Milwaukee to watch baseball?” Sviggum added.

Season-ticket holder Jill McCallion, for one, is ready for the upcoming season. “I have nothing but optimism for the current season,” she said. “I’d like to, obviously, see them as a .500 team — they certainly could [be].”
