A sure sign that spring is just around the corner. Crews at Target Field started taking off the tarp that has protected the grass all winter long. Head Groundskeeper Larry Di Vito said the snow this winter helped. “The sooner we can see what we are dealing with the happier we are.” Di Vito said. He said they are hoping for sunny days over the next two weeks  “The last two weeks of March are the most critical for us.” He said “We need sunlight, some decent overnight temperatures.  The field heat takes care of a lot but we can’t replicate the sun”
