Greetings from newly renovated Hammond Stadium
FORT MYERS, Fla. — The Twins are among the last teams to report for Spring Training, as pitchers and catchers don’t report to the CenturyLink Sports Complex until Sunday.
Sunday also marks the grand opening of the renovated CenturyLink Sports Complex, which underwent a $48.5 million facelift. It’s essentially the completion of the second phase of the project, as several additions were also made last year such as the boardwalk in the outfield and the creation of a player development academy on the Spring Training site.
The second phase more than doubled the size of the concourses while adding new concessions, upgraded restroom facilities and a new retail store for fans. The suites, offices and pressbox at Hammond Stadium were also updated. And the player development academy, which was still under construction last spring, is now completed.
Look for a full story and video of all of the renovations on Sunday, but for now, here are some photos:
