|Noooo baseball in the Metrodome this spring.|
It was announced Wednesday that the roof tears in the fabric roof won't be repaired until sometime this spring. Which not only forces the Twins to find a new home for Twins Fest in January, but wipes out a slate of more than 300 college and high school games.
Those games don't draw like a Twins game, or even Twins Fest (which brought more than 30,000 fans to the Dome last winter). But they're vital to maintaining college baseball, with its February-June schedule, in the chilly Upper Midwest.
Jim Rueda, our sports editor, will be doing a story in the next few days about how the loss of the Dome will affect the local college teams.
