Phil Miller covered three seasons of Twins baseball, but that was at a different ballpark for a different newspaper. Now Miller returns to the baseball beat after joining the Star Tribune as the Gopher football writer in 2010, and he won't miss the dingy dome for a minute. In addition to the Twins and Gophers, Miller covered the Utah Jazz and the NBA for six years at The Salt Lake Tribune.

Twins first spring training game slated for Feb. 23

Twins pitchers and catchers will report to Fort Myers, Fla., on Feb. 12 with the first exhibition game slated for Feb. 23, the team announced today.

Those dates are earlier than most years, partly because the World Baseball Classic will be played during camp again next spring, and partly because the regular season opener comes April 1 against Detroit at Target Field.

The Twins will play 19 of their 34 spring training games at their home ballpark, Hammond Stadium, starting Feb. 24 against the Rays. Minnesota’s last Grapefruit League game will be played March 30 at Boston’s spring training site.

Here's a link to the Twins spring training schedule.
