The new Vikings stadium won't be just for football. There will be baseball played there.
     
The Vikings and the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority came to the agreement to design the stadium to accommodate a baseball field.
 
The Gophers and other college and prep baseball teams will play early-season games there.
 
It'll feature a 26-foot-high right field wall, retractable seats on the north sideline and removable dugouts.
    
The new stadium is set to open July 1st of 2016.
