    My thoughts exactly, I’m sure I’m in the minority here in MN.
    Last year on opening day we had about 8″ of snow.
    If not for the dome I doubt we would have won 2 world series.

    I feel the same way! If they had to have an outdoor stadium, they should have added a retractable roof! When spending that much, what’s a few million more? We’ll have to think twice before going to a game… we won’t want to get tickets in advance and then get rained out! It’s a long drive to go up there from where we live and then get rained out!
    We had lots of fun at the dome! And the weather was always perfect!!!!

    Hi Pat, I talked to a major league baseball scout at one of the Yucaipa High games last year, and he covers the Twin Cities area. He said that all the major league owners want outdoor stadiums, but knowing the Midwest weather, he can’t figure out why the fans would want to sit outdoors either freezing, or in hot, humid weather when they could be comfortable in a doomed stadium. I bet in a couple of years, the “great outdoors feeling” will wear off and fans will wish they were back in the comfort of the Metrodome.
