The first pitch at U.S. Bank Stadium left the mound just after 6 a.m. and almost an hour before sunrise Friday morning. Yet, more than 100 fans arrived early for the first-ever baseball game at the billion-dollar stadium.
The Twin Cities’ newest baseball diamond didn’t give up much offense in its debut. Iowa Central won the first game of a doubleheader 1-0 and Century College of White Bear Lake won the second game 3-0 in extra innings.
Century College is a two-year community and technical college located in White Bear Lake, Minnesota, serving over 21,000 students per year.
