Tear it down and build a ballpark. If the city wants people there year round, using the parking garages and visiting businesses, they need a reason to go there in numbers. Basketball during baseball's off season and vice versa. Just look at the Twin Cities. They just built a new ballpark right next to the city's huge parking garages. And on the other side of those parking garages... the Timberwolves' NBA arena. All of the businesses in the area seem to be busy. And for those that will say, but MSP has MLB, not AAA, just look at the St. Paul Saints. That's right, look at the independent league baseball team in the Twin Cities. They get large crowds (larger than the AAA Beavers) because they have an actual baseball park, not a multiuse stadium. The numbers are there for the Beavers if they had a proper stadium.
