There must be millions of details needing tending
The view from our seats. I took this picture while standing, and the railing would prove mildly problematic when I sat down -- but not as much as my scorecard, which I always seemed to be holding right in Vic's view of the plate (she told me so).
Seventh Street windows
Looking up toward Sixth Street.
The parking bay structure is now clearly visible
Parking ramp knothole
Showing more of the context for the louvers.
This is the plaza as viewed from the A ramp.
Puckett atrium chef stand menu
Note the speakers hanging beneath that deck
The Pro Shop.
Doors directly to the concourse, and a view of the stands beyond
Here's another look at the Oliva gate.
Someone please get those poor people a drink of water. (Gate 34, after the game had started)
Here's the view from the main concourse out through Gate 3 "Killebrew".
Heaters over standing room (the backs of the retired number circles visible above)
The main concourse is a very busy place at all times.
Where you are, and where you can go.
The top of a warehouse visible beyond a parking ramp.
Looking from the middle of the third base side back toward the entry door
The finished product. Note that, at the very bottom of this image, you can just barely see the tops of the windows which look into the Champion's Club. (Home Plate Box)
Look beyond the gigantic hand (a hounds tooth jacket? really?) and you'll get a glimpse of the main grandstand configuration. The two (or is it three?) levels of suites are visible, as is the design of the so-called "split upper deck," and the extensive use of limestone for decorative accents. Let's hope these little touches don't get cut as costs increase, because they make a nice tie-in from the outside of the park to the inside. Of most interest to me is the way that the very best seats are physically separated from all the rest of the seats by that limestone. There will be virtually no way to sneak into these seats. On one level, that's a somewhat sad design feature...
Playing surface dirt out there? Maybe. (click to enlarge)
That's Noah and my brother, Chris, checking out the Loge Box amenities
It's a great view of the action, though standing here is somewhat discouraged.
The first pitch.
