Another former home of the Twins will be disappearing in 2014.
Tinker Field in Orlando will be joining the Metrodome in the dustbin, the Orlando Sentinel reports, probably in the next 60 days.

some historic photos from Tinker Field, including shots of Calvin Griffith here and here. Patrick Reusse has two more tales from Tinker Field here and here.
A video with the Sentinel's Mark Schlueb explains the plan for the demolition and the future:
