The ground may still be covered with snow, but baseball season is here, folks.

Eyebrows in Twins Territory were raised last year when our beloved and beautiful Target Field didn't crack TripAdvisor's list of the best ballparks in America.

But this year, the $545 million house that the Pohlads and Hennepin County built has been restored to its rightful place in the top 10.

Here's the full list, which was determined by an aggregation of feedback from TripAdvisor users who visited the ballparks:

1. PNC Park in Pittsburgh
2. Camden Yards in Baltimore
3. AT&T Park in San Francisco
4. Fenway Park in Boston
5. Busch Stadium in St. Louis
6. Target Field
7. Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City
8. Wrigley Field in Chicago
9. Comerica Park in Detroit
10. Safeco Field in Seattle

Last year's list featured the same top 5, with the only difference being that AT&T Park and Oriole Park swapped spots. Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Petco Park in San Diego, and Rangers Ballpark in Arlington fell off the list this year.

And while our winter without end promises more snow tomorrow and Friday, the Twins' president is looking forward to what should be a relatively pleasant home opener next Monday:
