UP ON THE ROOF: In Ohio, Sheldon Ocker wondered if it is "too late to consider building a retractable roof over" Progressive Field. Indians Exec VP/Business Dennis Lehman said, “We talked to Populous (the successor to HOK architectural firm that designed the stadium) a couple of years ago. We would have to build something like huge railroad tracks over the park for the roof to slide on and off. I don’t think we have enough land here. It’s a pretty tight fit on the site now. They didn’t think it was practical.” He added that he has "no idea what a roof would cost" (AKRON BEACON JOURNAL, 7/28).
