New features at Target Field were unveiled Tuesday ahead of the Minnesota Twins home opener scheduled for this week.

Among the amenities are a new sensory suite—which is designed to make going to games more inclusive for people with sensory sensitivities like autism—as well as “The Market,” an open-air walk-through spot for people to grab hot or pre-made food.

The team hopes these changes will keep fans coming back to Target Field.

"This is what we do," Twins President and CEO Dave St. Peter said. "The anticipation for Opening Day is always special. Add in all the different new elements that we’re unveiling today, combined with a team that we think is poised to really make some noise in the American League Central, this is a great time." St. Peter added, "it’s a great time to be a fan, great time to be a player. It’s baseball season and we can’t wait for it to start."

Currently, Opening Day is scheduled for Thursday, however, the game may need to be moved due to the weather forecast, which isn’t calling for baseball weather. The team’s president and CEO, Dave St. Peter, was asked about it on Twitter. He says they are watching it closely, and any decision to shift it will come at least 24 hours in advance.

If the game does get moved to Friday, fans will have their tickets for Thursday’s game honored.
