Continued: Metrodome is ready to sell off its parts

Anne Leary-Skenzich, of Minneapolis, requested a small access gate that led to the TV broadcast platform at Twins games. Leary-Skenzich said she has fond memories of serving as the “gatekeeper” for the reporters and photographers who would come and go.

And Nick Kline, of Brookings, S.D., wrote seeking “a ­souvenir of any kind.”

Kline met his wife on a blind date at a Twins-Toronto Blue Jays game in May 2007. Four years later, they married. Come September, the couple are expecting their first child — a girl.

“My goal is to have a piece of the Metrodome to pass down to our daughter one day,” Kline wrote in an e-mail. “I would like to have something for her to hold onto as a symbol of the day that her parents first laid eyes on each other.”

  • In the market for this used pitcher’s mound? How about a small lawn tractor, a row of bleacher seats or a batting cage? The sale of surplus items at the Metrodome will likely be spread out over a few months, starting this fall.

  • Spare stairs and forklifts are kept in the Metrodome’s lower garages. “We have nowhere to store this stuff anymore,” said Michele Kelm-Helgen, chairwoman of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority.
