"The Dome was our signature." -Torii Hunter
"The Dome was alive and it was loud." -Corey Koskie
"A lot of spooky stuff happened in there." -Kent Hrbek

From 1982-2009, the Twins called the Metrodome their home. During that time there were World Championships Hall of Fame performances crazy bounces and balls lost in the roof. It was a different kind of ballgame and the Dome had many critics but you always knew the game would be played. Along the way the Twins shared the Dome with some of the top groups in rock music. The Metrodome was "Minnesota's rec room."

Through new interviews with legendary Twins players and personalities The Twins in the Dome is packed with fond recollections and candid comments. The stories are told by those who were there:

Kent Hrbek - Bert Blyleven - Tom Kelly - Torii Hunter

Tim Laudner - Roy Smalley - Corey Koskie

Jim Rantz - Dick Bremer - John Gordon

Don Denkinger - Bill Lester

Bob Showers gathered hundreds of color photos that fill the pages and bring the stories to life. From Kirby Puckett and Justin Morneau to "Sweet Music" Viola and the Rolling Stones the history is preserved in The Twins in the Dome.
