Dome Under Construction, Set 1 of 2

I believe it was January 1982. The snow was flying on the outside, but only a few months till opening and the construction of the Dome was in its finals stages.

Frequent commenter 'The Doctor' and I slipped on our suits and did a walk through of the stadium in transition. The Right field stands were pulled down as for football, but without turn the cement pocks for the bases gave the field a very baseball look.

Today, pics from the field, tomorrow or Monday, pics from the stands. (Click to enlarge) The picture at the end if the quick repair job of the dome after the November 1981 deflation. Interesting seeing the roof without its inner lining.
