Playing baseball on a football field or vice versa

I'm probably not the only person who has thought of this, but I'll pretend for now... There are only two franchises remaining who still use the same stadium for both their football and baseball games: Oakland and Minnesota. Not only did they play each other in football last night (at the Metrodome), but both Oakland and Minnesota play baseball in their respective stadiums tonight. I'm guessing you'll be able to see the yard lines quite well tonight.

I wonder if it's ever happened where the A's-Twins have played a game in either place the night after a Raiders-Vikings game?

the real fun starts when we start having 10:30 am that end at 2:30 whether or not the game is actually over so the gophers can play at 7.
