One, Two, Three Strikes and Fireworks!

It’s almost the Fourth of July, which has me thinking about fireworks…and I have to say, one of my favorite spots to see a great show is at Target Field.

On Friday nights, after nine innings of baseball, fans can stay in their seats (or move closer for a better view of the outfield) and watch the countdown clock. The stadium will go dark, and “bing, bang, boom” the sky above Target Field will become illuminated with an array of fireworks that usually inspire  a good deal of “oohs and ahhs” from the crowd, regardless of the game’s final score.

What’s your favorite fireworks memory at Target Field?
