The lineups are posted at Target Field for the home opener as the Twins play host to the Seattle Mariners (3:10 p.m., BSN).

There are 10,000 fans at the park, the first crowd allowed after a pandemic-shortened 2020 season saw empty stadiums.

"Yeah this is what we've been all waiting for," manager Rocco Baldelli said. "We've been thinking about it for a long time. We got a chance to see what it was like to play with no fans in this building and I'll tell you what, it's a beautiful stadium, we love showing up here but it's really only Target Field when the fans are out there with us when we take the field."

Because of rainy weather, the pregame flyover was canceled.

Jose Berrios (1-0, 0.00 ERA) starts for the Twins against Mariners lefthander Marco Gonzales (0-0, 7.50).

In the press box, the Twins have a tribute to Sid Hartman, the Star Tribune columnist who died in October at age 100.

Phil Miller, who just finished covering a six-game road trip where the Twins went 4-2, talked over the season's start on the Daily Delivery today with Michael Rand.
