Would like to thank Scott Baker and Ron Gardenhire for making sure I got to see plenty of the new stadium yesterday without having to worry about missing a competitive contest. Casilla just about muscled that one through the infield. At least I got to see a bit of Twins history when Sal Butera ripped his first ever big league hit. When he's closing in on 300 career hits I'll always be able to tell my children ... "Children, I saw his first ever career hit, a solid knock to left field. He was a bit out front and hit it off his front foot, but he hit it square and ran fast. Hard to believe, Children, that was 299 hits ago."
