The Twins have announced plans for a new 42,000-seat ballpark to be built in the historic Warehouse District of Minneapolis. The Twins ($125 million) and a Hennepin County sales tax increase will provide the funding. Estimated costs for the new ballpark, including bonding costs, site preparation and surrounding infrastructure, range from $475 million to $520 million.
At that price, the Twins need to get the most bang for their bucks. Page 2's Jim Caple and Kurt Snibbe offer some suggestions to spice up the ballpark.
