MINNEAPOLIS - Twins officials say a plan to sell a limited number of early entry tickets was prematurely released and that the team will not offer those tickets.

On Tuesday, the Twins announced that they were going to allow fans to purchase early entry tickets that will allow them into Target Field 45 minutes before gates open to the general public.

Early entry tickets would have cost $15 dollars, and sales would have been limited to the first 60 fans. Fans would have also been required to have a normal entry ticket to the game, and would not have been allowed to exit and reenter the ballpark after batting practice.

The team told KARE 11 that the idea was not vetted through the proper channels before it was released.

The Twins said there will be no change in the current policy regarding gate opening times. Season ticket holders will continue to be given early-access priority as part of the Sweet Spot program, team official said.
