      How many sides were there to the Kingdome?

      "...So the winning run is on second base, with two outs, three and two to Mookie Wilson.

      Little roller up along first; BEHIND THE BAG! It gets through Buckner!

      Here comes Knight and the Mets win it!"

        Seattle, like many teams went back to..(or in the Mariners' case, finally went to) belts & buttons, in 1987. Click here.

        V neck pullovers and elastic wastebands, not to mention those garish nest egg blue road uniforms...that made visiting teams look like a band of orderlies held captive...are 70s abominations that baseball will never live down.

          That looks like it's during demolition. Very interesting photo - the Kingdome looks so small in it, and looks so lifeless.

                  Beginning with the 1991 baseball season, the Kingdome used 2 different artificial surfaces for baseball and football.

                    Griffey Jr. and Sr. play on the same team 18 years ago as Seattle beats Kansas City 5-2 before 27,166 at the Kingdome.

                      Any way to blow up the image of the truck on the field? From the lights on in the baseball pressbox and the way the diamond is laying on the field, you could make an argument for it being a construction shot. The cement that is down the left field line, which looks like the seperation for the football turf looks new.

                      Then again, the wires for the speaker system look to be ripped apart.

                        Looking at the upper deck, it seems like it has some wear and tear on it due to years of usage. Although it could be construction - the field could go either way.

                          I'm going to say that's a construction photo. The photo itself just has an overall 1970s "feel" to it, and the content looks more like construction than demolition.

                            I'm going with construction. Look at the lights, they go all the way around behind the home plate area. By the time the photo in thread #15 was taken, those lights had been removed. I highly doubt they installed several hundred lights to illuminate the tear-down process. Also, the field appears to be getting prepared as the sliding pits and football sidelines are neatly left alone. You'd think during the tear out that nobody would care too much about their condition. Additionally, I'd think there would be more vehicles and heavy equipment present during the demolition process. I like my theory here, I believe that I'll stick to it.

                              I still like my theory, but upon further review, those lights might actually be there behind a black curtain. Any Kingdome experts able to elaborate?

                                After 2 tiles collapsed in '94, all tiles were removed and a new spray on material was applied to the ceiling. No mas.
