"Goodnight Sweet Prince" reads the display screens in Target Field following the announcement of Prince's death on April 21, 2016 in Minneapolis, Minn. Target Field tour guide Steven Levin tried valiantly to tell a group of visiting second graders who Prince was but they were more interested in trying to run the bases, which is not allowed.
