MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A spokesman for the Metrodome says the collapsed roof won’t be fixed until sometime in March, affecting hundreds of college baseball games and the annual Twins Fest.

Bill Lester of the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission says the baseball coaches were notified this week.

Lester says the Minnesota Twins will be forced to move their event, which is scheduled for Jan. 28-30. Calls to a Twins spokesman were not immediately returned.

Lester says about 300 baseball games were scheduled to be played in the dome in February and March, including about 40 University of Minnesota games and 250 small college games.

He says during the early spring, it’s not unusual for the Metrodome to host baseball games from 8 a.m. to midnight.

The roof collapsed Dec. 12 during a snowstorm.
