The five-day FanFest that occupied the city's convention center did not cost Major League Baseball a dime in rent, according to an agreement outlined in today's paper.

In addition to waiving $258,850 in rental fees, the agreement granted the league up to $150,000 in credits to apply toward other ancillary expenses -- including security, audio-visual rentals, food and vacuuming.

See below for the full text of that agreement, obtained by the Star Tribune through a data practices act request. The waived rent expenses are listed on page 9. The credits are outlined on page 2.
