Seattle Kingdome History Date

SEATTLE (AP) — What many see as the beginning of the end for the Seattle Kingdome occurred on this date 19 years ago. At 4:35 p.m. on July 19, 1994, Seattle Mariners players getting ready for a game with the Baltimore Orioles looked up to see four 26-pound ceiling tiles fall nearly 180 feet into the stands behind home plate. The building was closed for 3½ months and two men were killed during the repair work, while the Mariners were forced into a 22-day road trip. The Kingdome was demolished in 2000.
