Target HQ main entrance. Ballpark resemblance? (Inset.)
Bike parking available along Second Avenue
Here's the view of the entrance ramp to 394. Looks like they are painting...
Justin Morneau, mobbed after a game-winning homer on June 9
Now looking north, the tracks emerge from beneath Seventh Street as freight tracks only. The Northstar line ends at the northwest corner of the ballpark. One day, however, you can bet that other passenger trains will approach from the southwest metro on these tracks -- if our legislators are smart and persistent, that is.
Scoreboard in profile against the skyline
Larry DiVito, mowing
Harmon is visible (barely) at the very center of the crowd.
The circulation ramp on the north now has its louver framing.
The season was perfectly bookended by Mick Sterling on the plaza
Open house skeptics
This is the back of the Cisco Field scoreboard, showing video to folks out on the plaza.
This is the entrance behind home plate (not visible in the renderings which have been released). It shows that the upper deck is set back from the facade -- a very good thing if it remains in the final design.

Did I mention that the cheerleaders looked pretty sharp?
End of the line.
Mauer steps in for the first time.
Near the end of the Angels' 4-run second inning.

Legends Club seats feature in-seat service

This design has a rather generic quality to it, but they appear to have considered the B garage. Though it isn't part of the model, they've clearly left room for it.
From the best seat in the house (Section 8, Row A), the right field corner is blocked. (No one may care. Fine with me. People should know.)
Skywalk over Seventh, looking back toward the parking ramp
TC gets ready to release the hounds. (Kids get to run the bases after Sunday games.)
A glimpse of the rather plain west facade (the side which faces the HERC plant).
