The 2010 schedule won't be officially announced until sometime in September, but the Associated Press has obtained at least a portion of the schedule, including the date of the first outdoor game in Minneapolis in twenty eight seasons.

Target Field is set to open on April 12, 2010 when the Minnesota Twins take on the Boston Red Sox. This was released:

Target Field has a target date.

Outdoor baseball is tentatively set to return to Minneapolis on April 12th, when the Minnesota Twins play their 2010 home opener against the Boston Red Sox.

The date was contained in a draft schedule for next season that recently was sent to teams and revealed Friday to The Associated Press. It was provided by a baseball official on condition of anonymity because Major League Baseball's central office asked that the schedule not be made public before it is finalized later this year.

Minnesota is tentatively set to open the season on April 5th, in California against the Los Angeles Angels.

It looks as if the Twins will play in Los Angeles, travel to one other city, and then head to Minnesota to kick off the first season in Target Field.
