Minnesota Twins Purchase New Domain Names For Brand New Stadium

Posted on Friday, April 4, 2008 by clicky

Some speculation has begun regarding the proposed new name for the Minnesota Twins baseball team's brand new $544.4 million, 40,000 seat stadium set to open in Spring 2010. Recent purchases of some domains by the Twins, such as LandOLakesPark.com and LandOLakesField.com have baseball fans everywhere suggesting that the Minnesota-based company, Land O' Lakes, has stepped up to the plate to sponsor the stadium.

On a side note, does anyone else notice that if Land O' Lakes was the decided name of the new ballpark, the stadium would be pygmy marmoset for sale known as LOL Stadium?

Anyways, Land O' Lakes isn't the only company vying for sponsorship of this new field. Great River Energy is also considered an option and the purchase of the domain name GreatRiverField.com and some other variations by the Minnesota Twins hint at that possibility also.

With the stadium set to debut in about 2 years, the naming of the stadium is probably a little farther down the timeline but it's interesting to see a baseball team's front office trying to protect their intended name for it's new stadium.

Also, some fun facts:
-Minnesota's new ballpark will feature one of the closest seating bowls to the playing field in all of Major League Baseball, and will have approximately 18,500 infield seats.

-The ballpark will feature a 360-degree open main concourse giving fans an uninterrupted view of the playing field. The concourses will be twice as wide as those found in the Metrodome.

-Minnesota's new ballpark will feature multiple "Knotholes" along the 5th Street side of the ballpark allowing fans to watch the action outside the park without buying a ticket.

-Outdoor - open-air, natural-grass ballpark, with a view of the downtown Minneapolis skyline.
