MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 7, 2014--

selfie” at the Selfie Mirror at the new Twins Digital Clubhouse
sponsored by U.S. Bank.

Located in left field near the U.S. Bank Home Run Porch, the Digital
Clubhouse will feature several stations like the Selfie Mirror where
fans can create digital souvenirs, interact with other fans on social
media and charge their phones. The Clubhouse is designed around an old
dugout bench used by the Twins at the Metrodome.
“The Twins organization is committed to providing fans with the best
ballpark experience in baseball,” said Phillip Trier, Twin Cities market
president for U.S. Bank. “The Digital Clubhouse gives fans a chance to
document their day at the game and share their experience with friends
and family in a whole new way. As an industry leader in mobile banking
and a founding partner of Target Field, working with the Twins to bring
the Digital Clubhouse to life was a natural fit for U.S. Bank.”
The Twins designed the Digital Clubhouse to address a rising demand
among fans for an interactive, digital experience at the ballpark. Fans
will get the first look at the Digital Clubhouse at today’s home opener
when Oscar-nominated actor Barkhad Abdi, a Minneapolis resident, will
throw the ceremonial first pitch and then host a meet-and-greet with
fans at the Digital Clubhouse.
“We’re excited to present the Digital Clubhouse alongside U.S. Bank, a
longtime corporate supporter of the Twins,” said Chris Iles, director of
corporate and digital communications for the Minnesota Twins. “The
Digital Clubhouse puts Target Field on the front end of ballparks
embracing digital capabilities as a way to enhance the fan experience.
It is a place where fans can not only engage with the most recent
user-generated Twins content, but create their own content and memories
to last a lifetime.”
