NEW BALLPARK FOR TWINS ON DECK?
Published September 11, 1996
Minneapolis officials have identified five downtown sites where a retractable-domed stadium, which would cost "at least" $300M, could be located, according to Jay Weiner in the Minneapolis STAR-TRIBUNE. "Minnesota Wins," a local pro sports advocacy group backed by $1.25M in cash from 17 corporations, including "an undisclosed amount" from Cowles Media Co. which owns the Star Tribune, will begin conducting focus group sessions to "take citizens' stadium-related pulse." St. Paul Mayor Norm Coleman has "floated his desire" to get the Twins to move there and due to an escape clause in their lease, the Twins can leave the area after the '98 season. Twins Owner Carl Pohlad has stated that he doesn't want to sell or move the team. If the Twins leave the Metrodome, the Vikings will eye a renovation of the facility with more football seats that are closer to the field (Minneapolis STAR-TRIBUNE, 9/11).
