This summer, when you buy a Target Field ticket for a Minnesota Twins game, you’ll be able to store it on your iPhone, and show that virtual ticket at a stadium gate to gain admittance.

Such a digital ticket would be stored in Apple’s Passbook, an app that functions as a kind of digital wallet on an iPhone running a recent version of the iOS operating system.

Thirteen U.S. professional-baseball stadiums will offer Passbook support this summer, up from four last year, according to Major League Baseball (via a GigaOM report: bitly.com/Y0jeRx).

Passbook accounted for a significant percentage of single-game tickets purchased online last year, apparently.

Passbook already can be used in a host of other Twin Cities commercial venues, such as Starbucks and Walgreens.  I have written about Passbook use in the Twin Cities several times before: bitly.com/PassbookMSP
