Out doors Baseball

Wouldn't baseball outside be fun tonight? 24 degrees and a 30 mph wind. I think I'll stay home and watch it on the tube.

Two months of the season are definitely not going to be good for MN baseball outdoors. But after my very first trip to the Dome for game 1 and 2, you really do need a new stadium. I'm sure the dome probably has memories for you guys, but the improvement potential of a new park is huge. Even a small park like Cincy GABP offers advantages you won't believe if you haven't been to a modern one.

isnt the new stadium supposed to have a retractable roof? so it would be the best of both worlds? besides that this is minnesota give it five minutes and the weather will be different.

"isnt the new stadium supposed to have a retractable roof?"

I haven't heard that, but am hopeful that is the plan in the end.

No roof. It would cost something like $70 million more to add a retractable roof.

After they leave the dome I think the only Twins games I'll go to will be in Miller Park.

I'm too young but my great uncle talks about how great the "Old Met" stadium was. They would dress warm and head out to the game. I personally think it's going to be a lot of fun going to an outdoor stadium. So what if you have to get your winter gear on for few games, it will be a game you will not forget laugh.gif. Were minnesotan's and can handle a little chilly weather!

The bad part of not having a roof is for the people who have to travel from out of state. Many come to the Twins games for a weekend series and for a shopping trip. Have to keep mom happy too! I can remember going to the Met back in the mid 60's for a Yankee series and it rained both days. Pretty sad for a young kid who only had the opportunity to go to a couple of games a year. I really enjoyed the outdoor baseball much more than the dome though.

I think that if teams in Detroit, Chicago, New York and Milwaukee can handle a little cold weather and potential rain outs I think we can as well.

every team has people coming from long distances to catch the game. Yeah its too bad if the game gets called off becuase of rain but its all part of the game. Every team deals with it.

Ahhhh the wussification of America continues, so it's a tad chilly for watching a baseball game. Layer-up and throw on the Sorels. Time to man-up you Nancy boys. grin.gif

I'm all aboot putting on the carharts and watching b-ball.

The wussy umps need to play through the rain and cold instead of calling the game, however.

We did a Wrigley weekend many years ago. The crowd was nearly naked one day but the wind shifted off Lake Michigan and it was pretty miserable.

You describe yesterday at the Tiger/Toronto game in a nutshell. Barely thirty degrees, wind, and snow. Tigers had a 10-2 lead, and squeeked out a 10-9 win after some wind caused misplays of a couple fly balls. Why not open in Southern cities? But, the other side of the coin, Monday, for opening day, the weather was sixty degrees and sunny. Go figure. World Series games were played in similar conditions last year.

I think outside baseball games in MN this time of the year is too early. This kind of weather is football weather. Baseball is supposed to be warm and enjoyable. No shivering and sniffling. A rectractable roof would be awesome but here comes the money thing again. I wouldn't mind building another dome like thing again but a outdoor stadium, how many fans would you get on crappy days?

I go to several games each year, and the games I goto are when its cold and crappy outside, and I cant go fishing. I would like a roofed stadium, with heat! Call me a sissy, but when Im scrunched into a seat and cant move around much, I get cold! Now on the other hand , watching a game when its 100 degrees and sunny isnt any fun either! Then I want air! I live an hour or so away, it would be a waist of my time to drive there pay for parking and tix on a questionable rainy day! Put a retractable roof on it! It would be awsome sitting in the sun on a 60-70 degree day watching baseball, but most of you live in mn, how often do we get them days! I would forsee myself going to less games in the new stadium!

At the risk of being called a Wuss smile.gif ...........

You really need to get the big picture. Lets take two months of season and peel off 10,000 fans per game when the weather is crappy. Let's see, who should we not sign to make up for our loss of revenue? Think that can't happen? Go 70-92 one year and see what happens to attendance when it is cold out.

I just drove 900 miles since Sunday (did I mention gas was $2.55 gallon) to watch a couple Twins games so please don't call me undedicated. One of the games would likely have been called off.

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      Guessing u aren't from the 218. I went 2 the Virginia n Chisholm lucky 7s today n both locations had shiners.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?
    • slammer
      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks
