Before the start of the 2002 season, Major League Baseball postponed its plan to contract two teams – one of which was expected to the Minnesota Twins. A combination of successful litigation in Minnesota and the introduction of federal legislation that would revoke baseball’s antitrust exemption contributed to this decision. Written in 2002, the author predicts this legislation would impact the future of whether or not a new, baseball-only stadium would be built in the Twin Cities.
