MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

The noon start of the Minnesota Twins vs Toronto Blue Jays doubleheader on Thursday will officially go down as 31 degrees, making it the coldest home game in team history.

Twins fans bundled up with blankets and hunting jackets at Target Field, one day after April snow showers and freezing rain postponed Game 2 of the 3-game series.

Twins front office executives and other volunteers were called into action to help clear snow from the stadium. They couldn't get to the left field upper deck so the terrace remained closed for Game 1. Twins president Dave St. Peter was among those who grabbed a shovel to help.

The game also set a Target Field record for lowest-ever paid attendance, at 20,507 fans.
