Guerrier had tossed a ball to a fan wearing a Twins jersey, who dropped it. If you're going to wear the uniform, he was saying, you gotta make the play. The ball ultimately went to a fan wearing a Randy Moss jersey, and everybody laughed.
Wow! Looking good.
Yes, son, Memorial Stadium used to be right there, just beyond those gates.
This looks like a Twins Pub, but is actually the scoreboard operations.
A slightly different elevation drawing, again viewed from Fifth Street, with some labels. (Click to enlarge.)
Note reflected sunset (7:30 PM). Could be a worry...
Two concepts here remain in the final design. First is the oddly-shaped pavilion in center. Second is the section just above the right field fence. In the current design this section will hang over the field by a few feet. The original doesn't do that, but you can see that the concept goes way back in the planning.
You can get a hand-carved sandwich, or ice cream while pondering the career of Julio Becquer.
The view from the upper concourse.
The New as viewed from The Old.
Name that ballpark
Rod Carew will greet you, but he's sorely in need of a home plate for reference. (Killebrew is too.)
Looking south (toward Seventh Street).
Impractical, expensive, undeniably cool (Angel Stadium, source LP)
A scene repeated about a million times each game
The view from the corner of Ford Centre. (Feel free to tie up your boats here.)
Many people will approace the park from this direction and it's a pretty great first glimpse. It features all the design elements in modestly condensed form, and still manages to look like a ballpark (instead of something else).
After the rain. (We were in the wrong spot to see the rainbow...)
Viewed from an A ramp elevator lobby.
Back of scoreboard; facade in context.
This is where the plaza meets First Avenue
Double plays will be turned here.
Once again, Noah is holding his ears because of the traffic noise.

Of the players up there, only Bert does not have a gate with his number (28) on it at Target Field. You know, there is that door underneath the skywalk on Seventh Street between gates 14 and 29...
He'll always be a fan favorite, but did you know that he's making $18.5 million this year? The Twins' entire outfield today, combined, makes $7.45 million.
Notice the temporary railing extensions
The suite mock-up
Signage for the concession stand which is available from the plaza (plaques are up on the fencing)
At the end of the balcony you can see down the promenade.
