Here’s one from yesterday’s Twins game.

Fans cel­e­brate a Michael Cud­dy­er solo home run in the bot­tom of the sixth in­ning of Minnesota’s 6–0 win over the Cleve­land In­di­ans at Tar­get Field in Min­neapo­lis, Minn. on April 21, 2010.

Had a great time at Tar­get Field. It’s an ab­solute­ly great sta­di­um.
