Target Field survives the megaflush


When the Twins play their first home game next season at Target Field, there won't be a shortage of places for an anticipated 40,000 fans to take a leak, thanks to 401 women's and 266 men's "restroom fixtures" now in place.

Better yet, we now know those toilets are ready to go -- hundreds of them all at once, if necessary.

"Three hundred individual devices all flushed at the same time so there are no leaks and all the water is flowing the way it was designed to," construction manager Dan Mehls told KARE 11.

So there you go. Target Field can handle the load at the 7th inning stretch, as it were. Just don't ask us what that's going to look like downstream.
