Northern Sun Teams Fill Metrodome

Metrodome Interior

We are in the middle of a stretch between Feb 1st and Feb 10th where Northern Sun baseball teams will play 20 games at the Metrodome.  As I mentioned in an earlier posting, if and when that place gets torn down it will be a serious blow to upper midwest college teams.  So, as is typical for a division 2 game, the homer dome wasn’t filled with people, just teams playing baseball for the love of playing.  Here’s how much the dome means to the teams of the Northern Sun Conference –


As you can see, pretty much every team in or north of the Twin Cities is counting on the Metrodome to get in early season games without having to travel too far south.  With the economic issues facing all colleges it’s a good guess that without the dome in place a lot of these teams would end up with fewer games instead of trying to travel south more often.
