Evidence of a food court behind the seating above the batter's eye

Lots of work has gone into detailing the fronts of these decks. That is a little thing, but a NICE little thing. (HRP View)

Griffith Stadium (notch visible in lower photo at far left)
The Pohlads were loose. A-Rod looked, um, you decide.
Night games are much preferred by the players at Target Field. You can see why.
Workers against green
Here's the field of posts which will support the third base side of the grandstand. Some walls have started to appear about where the Northstar riders will enter the park.
For executive entertaining
TCF Bank Stadium. Not for baseball, but still pretty cool to watch being built.
I suppose that one day my son will graduate from Mrs. Fields to Hooters. At least he won't have to travel too far. *Shudder*
Legends Club seats in context (above the main concourse, below the suite level)
A peek through a tiny gate.
Apparently, there will be public restrooms accessible directly from the plaza.
This is a slightly blurry view of the pavilion in center. It has a quirky shape, but one which is completely consistent with the overall ballpark design. Nice work there. You can also get a glimpse of the greenery which will rise above the fences.
A familiar view through the top floor elevator lobby window in ramp B (HRP View and Terrace).
I meant to include this shot the other day. It's the new LRT bridge being built next to the remaining half of the Fifth Street bridge. The new half is almost TWICE the width of the portion torn down. And the other end runs right into a HERC administration building! (Click to see the view from nearly the same spot about 85 years ago.)
Here is Seventh Street viewed from the west looking toward downtown. This will probably be the most pedestrian-friendly side (other than the plaza), but only if there is some psychological barrier between the people on foot and the people in their dangerously fast-moving automobiles.
Bag checking at Ball Park Lanes was incredibly simple, as was the pick up later. The line was short and fast-moving.
That's Fifth Street (and a tattooed arm) in the foreground.
Miller Park: Gymnasium with skylight (Source: RP)
The limestone now wraps around onto the HERC side.
Panels arriving on flatbed trailers in front of the Twins' dugout.
Future home of the Met Stadium flag pole
This is the Metropolitan Club as viewed from the future Ballpark Authority office space.
I took this because of the view reflected in the store windows. (The store is cool too.)
This is a background image extracted from one of the blueprint pages. It's essentially a schematic of the park (Terrace Level). In it you can see the shape of the various seating areas (to a certain extent).
