MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Target Field has been open for just four months, but a book on the Minnesota Twins' new ballpark is already on sale.

"Target Field: The New Home of the Minnesota Twins" is authored by former Star Tribune writer Steve Berg. The coffee table book sells for $40.

Berg writes that Hennepin County Commissioner Mike Opat may be more responsible that anyone for making the stadium a reality. It was financed through a partnership between the county and the Twins.

The book explores the Twins' long journey starting in 1994 when owner Carl Pohlad said his team needed a new stadium because the Metrodome didn't deliver enough revenue. It runs through the years of battles at the State Capitol up through opening day in April.
