In early 2007, Twins ownership and the governer of Minnesota presented a plan for a retractable roof ballpark on the Minneapolis riverfront near the Metrodome. The funding process was exceptionally complex and angered the public and politicans. In the end, the bill to fund the project died in the Minnesota legislature in 1997. The site ended up being used for the Guthrie Theater which opened in 2006.
