ST. LOUIS DOME TO BE COMPLETED IN OCTOBER '95
Published November 14, 1994
FANS Inc.'s Thomas Eagleton announced Friday that if the Rams decide to relocate to St. Louis, they will have to play the first two months of the '95 season in Busch Stadium. Eagleton said that completion of the 75,000-seat dome would not be until October 25, and to ensure completion by the start of the season would cost an additional $11-20M. Lawrence Akey, Exec Dir of the St. Louis Stadium Authority, said that uncertainty in the weather and unforseen labor problems make a September 1 dome opening nearly impossible: "We certainly don't want to do anything that would jeopardize any opportunity of acquiring the Rams" (Jim Thomas, ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 11/12).
