Mall of America -- Baseball Ties
The mall was built on the site of the old Metropolitan Stadium (where the Twins played). This plaque marks the spot where the old home plate. They also kept a stadium seat on the spot where favorite son Harmon Killebrew's longest home (520') run landed. It is really weird seeing this red stadium seat seemingly randomly placed on a wall in a corner of the amusement park in the mall.
