Target Field bag policy 2023 is that the fans cannot bring bags larger than 16"x16"x8". Clutch bags, diaper bags, and soft-sided purses are allowed.

Built-in 2010, the ballpark is one of the best baseball stadiums to visit in the major league. The ground has been the home of the Minnesota Twins since its inception.

Target Field has strict rules and policies regarding what can be brought into the ballpark. There are restrictions on what types of bags and foods are allowed inside the stadium.

All these rules are kept to expedite the entry process and protect the fans who come to enjoy the game. Target Field hosted the 2014 All-Star game of Major League Baseball, where the AL defeated the NL by 5-3.

Further, the ballpark has hosted many non-sporting events like concerts and sporting events other than baseball, including hockey, soccer, and football.

MN Twins Bag Policy

Twins Stadium bag policy state that fans can't bring bags larger than 16 inches by 8 inches by 16 inches. The bag must also be single-compartment.

From the 2023 season, the Twins have established a screening solution named Evolv Express at all five gates at the stadium. This technology allows fans to walk through the security without showing the items from their pockets or purses.

The enhanced technology is kept in place to speed up entry and provide top security to the fans. It also helps to improve the fan experience as they don't have to wait in line to get their items checked, physically.

However, the gate officials can still physically inspect your pockets, bags, or purses to ensure they comply with the stadium and major league policy.

  • Single-compartment tote bags
  • Clear bags
  • Drawstring bags
  • Diaper bags
  • Fanny packs
  • Single-compartment soft-sided coolers
  • Bags containing medically necessary items

In case of physical inspection, fans are only allowed if their item follows the stadium guidelines. Any bag that is deemed prohibited can not be taken inside the stadium.

Target Field bag rules state that the prohibited bag must either be returned to the vehicle or thrown away or kept in the bag storage locker provided by the team. Unlike some other major league stadiums, Target Field does not charge a fee for using the Bag Storage lockers.

The lockers are located near Target Field Station and Gate 6.
