$15 to watch batting practice is just silly. And tours of Metropolitan Club, Legends Club and Champions Club as a substitute? Whoopee!

What is this, anything for the almighty dollar? I find this atrocious that the Twins would want you to pay to watch them hit a slowly pitched baseball with nothing on the line. I wonder how many fans will pay this fee to watch them. I know I won't.

The Twins could do a lot better public relations wise by letting kids groups in during BP rather than collect $900 per game. How about military families and their kids? Or some other group?

The would probably sell more regular tickets if they would just allow all fans to watch BP 45 minutes early, free of charge.

Wow. The Pohlad's have it covered. As for the fans and families, "Sorry little Billy, we don't have the extra cash to get in to watch batting practice. Consider yourself lucky we have tickets to the game."

If you show your Hennepin County Taxpayer ID at the door, they'll charge you $30.

Batting practice should be included for anyone that wants to come early and watch. "Bush League" comes to mind.
