At first, I was concerned players wouldn't be able to pick up fly balls under the white sail, but a little more research showed the sail would only cover the stands-- not the field. Total price tag for the project is $450 million. Voters still have to give their approval. If everything goes according to plan, the stadium in Tampa could be open for the 2012 season.
The design intrigues me. If it works, and if could be done within a reasonable cost, I can see sail topped stadiums in a lot of other places.
