ST. PAUL -- The Minnesota Twins have said no to Mayor Norm Coleman's proposal
for a ballpark in St. Paul.
Twins President Jerry Bell said it's not that the Twins were not interested, but that
the plan did not work.
Bell said that the St. Paul proposal would have required a big investment from the
business community and the team -- much more than would have allowed the Twins to remain
Coleman (pictured, left) said through his representatives that he will not pursue his
ballpark effort any further. The mayor is not running for re-election this year and has
indicated that he might run for the U.S. Senate next year.
