The new Met Park was built for $1.3 Million dollars and the 6,200 seat baseball stadium was promised to be a unique and utterly modern futuristic ballpark. When it debuted in 1970... it was certainly different. No one had ever seen a stadium look quite like this before. Met Park featured a cantilevered roof top down the lines and a unique octagonal "baseball shrine" which held press and luxury boxes along with a full restaurant (the first of its kind in Minor League Baseball). There was also a very small VIP section of specialty box seating behind home plate. Met Park more than perhaps any other baseball stadium in history, attempted to showcase that "futuristic look" that had become a part of American architecture directly following the moon landing. One would almost think that if Woody Allen's space-age movie "Sleeper" were to have featured a baseball stadium... this would have been it.
