Spring training is underway in Florida, but there is plenty to do at Target Field before the 2013 season starts in Minneapolis (like melting the snow). FOX Sports North caught up with Minnesota Twins president Dave St. Peter to find out what fans can look forward to this upcoming season and beyond at Target Field.

PETER: Every year, we're going to work hard to make sure the ballpark remains as pristine and as exiting as it was for the first few years of the ballpark.

Twins' Willingham tailor-made for Target Field

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) When Josh Willingham signed a three-year contract with Minnesota before last season, he barely gave a second thought to his new home ballpark.
