Metrodome History Being Added to Webster Baseball Field
WEBSTER, S.D. (AP) — Upgrades to sports facilities in Webster will feature a piece of Minnesota sports history.
The upgrade to the city's Bob Wiley Field baseball complex will include 28 seats from the old Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis.
American Legion baseball coach Chad Hesla tells the American News that the blue seats will be used in two sections of raised patio space at the field.
The Metrodome was the longtime home of the Minnesota Twins and Minnesota Vikings before being torn down last year to make way for a new Vikings stadium. The Twins moved into outdoor Target Field in 2010.
The football field and track in Webster also are being upgraded, at a cost of $1.4 million.
