Section 237, Row 15 (top of the Trap)
Future home of the Met Stadium flag pole
Panels arriving on flatbed trailers in front of the Twins' dugout.
Just so you have a reference, this is an LD ("low def") scoreboard (inset is what the controller probably looks like).
What can you see from up there? Some say not much.
Infield dirt used as accents
Special guests in the trees!
Walkway construction is progressing
(Click to enlarge.)
Snow-blowing the field
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.
Home Plate Terrace -- really great seats; maybe my personal, budget-based favorite
The walkway under construction in the parking lot just outside the loading dock.
The visitor's clubhouse at Target Field. (Photo by Javen Swanson)
Polo Grounds from the south
This will be a bar/restaurant.
Dancing for the cameras
Door to the visitor's clubhouse.
This would be a beautiful streetscape if there were ANY people.
The back gates at Comerica park, like everything else, a bit overwrought.
I'm not sure why there's a wreath on Gate 3. (I quickly checked the headlines for any dreaded Killebrew news. Whew.) It looks to be in celebration, maybe of the move.
If you are into shade, there are lots of opportunities. This is from the last row in section 108 -- scoreboard not blocked in the least.
Skywalk over Seventh
Secret entrance exposed!

Since pictures of the ballpark are forbidden, perhaps you'll enjoy this shot of the lovely apple tree in my front yard.
Look closely and you'll see limestone on the front of the press box!
Near the end of the Angels' 4-run second inning.
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)
The angle on the main scoreboard from the Batter's Eye is surprisingly good -- acceptable, at least.
