Opening Day for the Twins 2019 season is just a little over two weeks away, and the Twins did something Monday that's the best sign Spring really is on the way.

Excitement has been buzzing around the Century Link Sports Complex in Fort Meyers, Florida where the Twins have been in Spring Training for the past couple of weeks. Their new manager, Rocco Baldelli, is in his first year and is bringing a new vibe to the team.

And while the Twins have been soaking up the sun down at Hammond Stadium, the rest of us back here in Minnesota have been enduring the Winter That Just Won't End, right? Pictures of Target Field covered in snow and ice have been common, even though Opening Day is just a little over two weeks away.

(By the way, we want to send you up to see the Twins during Opening Weekend! Listen weekdays at 7:10 to win tickets to the March 30th game plus an overnight stay at the luxurious new Intercontinental Resort & Hotel near the Mall of America! Get all the details HERE!)

But the Twins' grounds crew at Target Field just did something yesterday that renewed this Minnesotan's faith that Spring will get here. In a post on their Twitter page, the Twins post a few pictures of the tarp being removed from the playing surface at Target Field. And, lo and behold, there it was-- green grass!

That's right, even though the stands are still covered in snow-- and was that a Zamboni machine out there in right field?-- there was actually green grass uncovered! A sure sign Spring itself can't be too far behind, can it?
