If you're referring to the Houston Astrodome, Mantle hit the first home run there in an April 9th exhibition game between the New York Yankees and the Houston Astros. The victim was Astros pitcher Dick "Turk" Farrell.

March 30th, 2000 found the Yankees at Enron Field in Houston, set to play the inaugural exhibition game at the new retractable-roof dome against the Astros. When the Astrodome first opened in 1965, the Astros had also faced the Yankees for an exhibition game to open their new stadium. Back on April 9, 1965, in that game, Mickey Mantle became the first player ever to hit a home run in the Dome. On March 30,2000, Ricky Ledee pinch hitting for Clemens, promptly hit the first home run to leave Enron Field.

Currently, there are three if you include Toronto's Rogers Centre, which has a retractable roof. They are the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, home of the Minnesota Twins (sadly no longer their home after 2009), Tropicana Field, home of the Tampa Bay Rays, and Rogers Centre, home of the Toronto Blue Jays. Former domed stadiums are the Astrodome, home of the Houston Astros from 1965-1999, Olympic Stadium, home of the Montreal Expos from 1977-2004, and the Kingdome, home of the Seattle Mariners from 1977-1999. Correct me if I'm wrong.
