Chipotle MoonDome (2020-Present)

December 14th, 2019… Ground is broken on the reconstruction of the stadium formerly known as the Hubert H Humphrey Metrodome. The materials salvaged from the demolition of the Metrodome were shuttled to the Moon. The construction was completed swiftly with the help of skilled laborers and advanced building techniques from Venus. Only 3 construction workers were lost during the construction of the stadium, and this was considered low due to the zero gravity atmosphere of the worksite.

The Chipotle MoonDome officially opened for business on March 26th, 2020 when the Moon Tacos hosted the Pittsburgh Pirates for the first ever MLB game played on The Moon. The Tacos defeated the Pirates 7-0. Many fine mexican concessions were consumed.

Chipotle MoonDome Interior (Baseball). The Field Turf is the Original Minnesota Twins branded turf, as Owner Matt Myer deemed rebranding the turf as not a worthwhile expenditure of team funds. Also it secondarily acts as a nod to the building’s original location in Minnesota, where Myer grew up watching the Twins and where two World Series were won in 1987 and 1991.
