New Twins BallparkA turf battle over the market value for the land parcels selected for the new Minnesota Twins ballpark has created a delay in unveiling the design.

Club president Dave St. Peter said Monday that the Twins were planning on unveiling the renderings of the design (see current renderings here on The Biz of Baseball), but the presentation was tabled because of last week's decision by the board to postpone six major votes regarding the stadium originally scheduled for Feb. 27. As reported by the AP:

"Until there's some form of resolution between the county and the landowners, we're just going to sit tight," St. Peter said.

Due to the dispute, the county has said it has begun looking at alternative sites. A move would be difficult and require an amendment to the legislation passed last May authorizing a countywide sales tax for the $522 million stadium.
