In the late 1990's, with the Twins looking to get out of the Metrodome, one option was relocation. North Carolina businessman Don Beaver entered talks to purchase the Twins and move them to North Carolina. The first option was Greensboro, but a failed May 1998 referendum killed that plan. In 1999, attempts were made to build a park in Charlotte. There was little public support for a tax for the ballpark there too, so the plan died.
