This Day in Twins History – December 20, 1979

Construction began on what was to be the future HHH Metrodome and it was built by the state of Minnesota at a cost of approximately $68 million. The Metrodome became baseballs’ third domed facility.

What the future HHH Metrodome looked like in April of 1981 about a year before the Twins played their first game there.

The Twins started calling the Metrodome home in 1982 and played there final games their in 2009 before moving into Target Field in 2010. For more information on the Metrodome, please drop my Twins Stadiums page.
