Baseball will no longer be played at the Metrodome and the State of Minnesota is trying to get some money out of their assets.

You can purchase the mound used in all of the most famous games in Twins history. The starting bid is only $250.

Check out the information here

Where do you think the mound should end up?

Not quite...

The description clearly indicates that this mound was used "since March 2004"...
Not much history there, unless you count the Santana years

I hope they put the seats up for auction once the Vikings are done. I'd love to get my hands on one, and they should be cheap with how many there are.

If you follow the auction link, you will see they are also selling the right field baggy.

Also a "Super Sopper Water Picker Upper" from the Dome. And some insulation. Own a piece of history!

I don't think they could do more then sell the seat backs. The seats are anchred into the cement and all connected on the same base. Each would only have one armrest too if they were to some how cut them apart.

Still, I'm trying to figure out which sized socket wrench I need to bring to the last Vikings game in December.

I'd bid a dollar for the giant flashing milk jug.

Hey, they could still have a home playoff game, right? :)

Well the person who buys my ticket on Stubhub will be pretty disappointed when he goes to recline then.
