Approved: Twins ballpark design set

Hennepin County commissioners voted 6-1 Tuesday without discussion to approve the design for the new downtown Minnesota Twins ballpark.

Longtime stadium opponent Penny Steele cast the only opposing vote.

Plans for the $390 million, 40,000-seat stadium now move to the Minneapolis Planning Commission and the City Council.


Construction has already started and the ballpark is expected to open in 2010.
