One of the sweetest sights of the day -- the Dome, and only through passing bus windows.
Here's a closer look at the bullpen area. It's hard to tell for sure, but I think there is still an opening to the concourse right above.
Ready for action.

Ahh. Lunch in the admin building...
Bag checking at Ball Park Lanes was incredibly simple, as was the pick up later. The line was short and fast-moving.
The ballpark development area expanded by 1000 feet in each direction

At the other end of the bridge, the configuration of the tracks has become clear.

Looking across the top of the B parking ramp. Notice that signage will block any attempts at seeing the game from up there. Also take note of the glassed in area which is part club and part office space for the Ballpark Authority.
The windows have started going in.

Clyde Doeppner proudly displays colored bricks he scavenged from the Met during its demolition. These are the colors in question!
The scoreboard also towers over the LRT tracks, which now are functional (though not open) all the way to the park -- and beyond!

Viewed from another angle, you can see that the bullpens now sit beneath the upper deck outfield seating.
