That would be the end of baseball as we know it.

That's a pretty state-of -the-art dome stadium, right there.

Rivals that new thing they just built in Houston, the Astrodumb or whatever. 1970 will bring a whole new era to KC baseball.

I've seen this new Astrodome. The newly installed grass field looks terrific, no matter what the naysayers say...

Has Yanni ever played the Astrodome? I imagine he has. In that case, I'm in favor of it.

Had it been built, it would be obsolete by now and needing to be replaced.

Still wish they'd do this so we could have some FF's back in town.

I get the sarcasm...but it does show you how great the original K design really is. It's phenomenal how it's aesthetics set the bar for years to come. It was decades ahead of its time. Modern enough to be distinct...practical enough to be a classic. Just wish they would have built it downtown and away from Arrowhead. Baseball belongs downtown.

They did a great job on the reno imho.
