TWINS VETO PROPOSED REMODELING EFFORTS FOR THE METRODOME
Published June 1, 1995
The Twins have asked the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission (MSFC) to "stop" any Metrodome remodeling efforts until "the future of our tenancy is determined," according to the Minneapolis STAR-TRIBUNE. Twins Operations VP Matt Hoy: "Until the bigger issues or challenges facing the Twins organization are addressed, we're not in support of this project." MSFC was planning to construct a $3.6M outdoor plaza, the initial phase of a "wide-ranging" improvement. The Twins want MSFC to address such issues as adding more seats. MSFC Exec Dir Bill Lester said the commission does not need the Twins' permission and will vote on the issue as early as June 21. Even though the Twins pay no rent at the Metrodome, Twins President Jerry Bell has begun exploring other stadium possibilities as the team can exercise an escape clause after the '98 season (Jay Weiner, Minneapolis STAR- TRIBUNE, 6/1).
