So the band box once known as the Baggie Dome is getting smaller? Man are the dingers going to fly or what? Nice to see a ton more bathrooms though!

I for one am actually going to miss it. I lived in KC and sitting at an outdoor stadium IS a treat. Sometimes. I remember one series against the Tigers a friend and I went to a game, early April in KC, was 35 degrees at gametime. We sat in the upper deck and had an ice cold wind blowing in on us. That is going to be horrible here, both in april and october and I would be willing to bet you will see some games snowed out. Another thing is the very unique "Dome field" advantage that is being taken away. The Twins are so dominant in the 'dome and they will be losing that as well. They should have put a retractible roof on it, and I think it will be realized how bad of an idea it is very early on

You may be right Zam!

I just thought that the Baggie Dome was a hitters park and the new park was getting smaller, but the outdoor thing may knock that down. Only time will tell.

Fun fact: I will be able to get on the train in St. Cloud, get dropped off at the gate, have my fill, get back on the train and, unless I get mugged, accosted or spend a night with the county's finest, have a great day.
