STADIUM NOTES: TWINS PRESIDENT CALLS METRODOME "OBSOLETE"
Published September 12, 1995
Twins President Jerry Bell said Monday the Metrodome is "economically obsolete for major league baseball purposes" and the Twins need an immediate "one-to five-year quick fix to help the team stay competitive" (Jay Weiner, Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 9/12)....An editorial in Monday's DENVER POST supports the team's efforts to have a new stadium built: "The Broncos are at least entitled to the well-maintained facility they were promised when they signed a contract lasting until 2018" (DENVER POST, 9/11)....Cuyahoga County Commissioner Lee Weingart has stepped up efforts to have a new stadium built for the Browns rather than renovating Cleveland Stadium (Cleveland PLAIN DEALER, 9/10)....Citizens Against Fast-Track, a coalition of more than 100 Prince George's County citizens groups, will sue to stop legislation that puts the Redskins stadium project on a fast- track (WASHINGTON BUSINESS JOURNAL, 9/8-14 issue).
