Ad war between Twins and TWolves escalates

Remember last season when the Minnesota Timberwolves put up a sign on Target Center for Sanford Health which was clearly aimed at the Target Field audience?


Purists said the ad, which was put up just before the start of last fall’s playoffs, would dominate the view from the third-base-side seats and ruin the ambiance of the House That Joe Mauer Built. A Twins executive called the size of the ad “shocking.”

Today,the Twins released this photograph of a new scoreboard (with ads, no doubt), the Twins are building in right field. Perhaps it’s mere coincidence the scoreboard will block the Timberwolves’ ad.


Your move, Wolves.

Update 4:33 p.m. – The Twins have sent along this field-seat view
