HOUSTON While some people think the Astrodome should be demolished, an Astros legend said he hopes that won t happen.

Earlier Tuesday Bob Aspromonte reflected on the sad state of the Dome. When he played there it truly was the Eighth Wonder of the World, but it s now a mess inside.

Despite that, Aspromonte said he thinks the building still has value to the city.

I look at it from a historical standpoint. You ve got to be able to save this Astrodome somehow. Historically what it s done for the city of Houston, and what is going on now, it s very hard to do anything, but to save this dome, he said.

Aspromonte played in the Dome for four seasons, including the year the stadium opened in 1965.
