During the past three years, Carl Pohlad and his family have worked tirelessly to achieve their objective of finding a solution which would keep Major League Baseball viable in the Upper Midwest for generations to come.

To demonstrate this commitment, the Pohlads have accommodated the many creative proposals posed by legislators, the Governor and Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission representatives. By all accounts, the Pohlads offers were among the most generous and creative of any ballpark projects to date.

Despite repeated rejection, the Pohlads continue to believe that the Minnesota Twins are a valuable community resource for providing affordable family entertainment, and the Twins add significant economic and social value to our region.

Despite these beliefs and intentions, the fact is that the team cannot remain viable and competitive while playing in the Metrodome. This has been confirmed over and over again by numerous studies and committees which have thoughtfully reviewed the economics.

As voters from North Carolina s Triad region consider today s ballpark funding proposal, the Twins organization remains committed to resolving the economic challenges facing the franchise.

Regardless of the outcome of today s vote, the Minnesota Twins will continue to work closely with Major League Baseball to find a long-term solution for the franchise.

As the 1998 season continues, the Twins organization is working harder than ever to provide fans throughout the region with quality family entertainment. With that in mind, the Twins and the Pohlad family would like to express their sincere appreciation to fans across the Upper Midwest for their ongoing support of Twins baseball.
