Work beneath the scoreboard
The Northstar stop has a name.
Our host points to the Puckett Atrium on the diagram.
It looks like the Target-themed signage has spilled out to the surrounding area (this was taken from the entryway to the B ramp from Third -- the 394 entrance ramp tunnel)
I think that's a pig up there on that vane!

As mentioned earlier, one of the best climate-controlled views of construction is from the 7th floor elevator lobby in the A ramp. (That's Noah getting his first glimpse of the new ballpark.)
Looking the other direction, again from Ford Centre, you can see what's going on over the tracks. This will be a public promenade.
It's pretty easy to see right into the Twins dugout!
I never think of Rod Carew as a first baseman. But he was.
These outfield stands will likely remain visible to passersby.
A closer look at the louvers
Lots of speakers, but in some places, no sound.

This is the left field pavilion in the original concept model. The restaurant pictured to its right has been moved, and the seating area has been extended at least one full section toward center.
I noticed this detail while taking the previous picture. I figure that it must be the VIP entrance from the surface parking lot. I don't think there is any parking inside the ballpark, so this entrance will likely be for suite-dwellers and other VIPs, though I can't say for sure whether players will enter here.

From the revised site plan, this is the configuration of Gate 34 Puckett.

This will be a great neighborhood. Note that the covering is being built for the emergency access. Also, note the streamers above, which appear to be monitoring air flow.
The connection from the corner of Seventh Street and Second Avenue. You can now see where the little grassy area and franchise history board will be (the triangular area in the foreground).

We took refuge for a time in the Twins Pub where you can drink a beer (or just hang out) and listen to some ballpark tunes. The organ is decorated with a TC (of course) and what looked like drawings which Sue has received from kids.
TC gets ready to release the hounds. (Kids get to run the bases after Sunday games.)
This view looks up Fifth Street toward downtown and shows how the LRT tracks sort of snuggle up to the ballpark.
