The sign reads, "Mortenson Radio Channels".
A view from up (and in) the street.
I'm too short to see over that wall. How about a little platform or something?

Walkway construction is progressing
The back row of seats in straight-away center. Note that, beyond those seats, you can see the planters (for flowers) on the front of the Left Field Bleachers.(Batters Eye)
Here's a correction: The LRT platform will actually be able to load outbound trains from both sides.
Seventh inning sing-along.
I know these are giants bats with hops growing inside, but... Hmm...
Ahh. Lunch in the admin building...

Knothole non-view #2
The pouring is taking place at the very bottom of this photo.
I believe that the truck is parked in one of the curb cutouts which are being installed to facilitate ticket sales and traffic calming.
Just some of the lumiaries who turned out for the unveiling (Terry is clearly thinking about Sidney Ponson).
Larry DiVito, mowing
Also warming things up are these planters.
Here's another view up Sixth Street toward where the plaza will meet First Avenue (it will hug Target Center all the way).
A mysterious smile from within a very deep planter!
Don Swanson, left, in-coming commander of the Richfield American Legion, and Joe Kennedy, right, out-going commander, are pictured with the Legion's new flag pole, which once stood at old Metropolitan Stadium. (Click to enlarge.)
Off-topic, but this gigantic, cool, retro sign is just across the street from S&CH. Why? I don't know. Might look nice on top of one of those municipal parking ramps...
Which way to the skyway? Really??
Here's one big problem with a retractable roof: completely terrible seating in left. These scant few seats would have been tucked under the track. No sunshine, no open concourse, it was a terribly kludgy idea. With some hindsight, it's very clear that adding a retractable roof on this small site would have required compromises which would have just been too extensive to tolerate. Without it, the design was free to grow into something much more memorable.
Love the red flowers -- just like the original concept drawings. That NEVER happens.
Signage for the concession stand which is available from the plaza (plaques are up on the fencing)
