Directly above gate 6 "Oliva" on the Club level.
No admittance -- yet! Note that you can see the seating bolts which are in place already.
How many times did we water down our field as kids? More times than we played games, that's for sure!
Larry DiVito, mowing
The view through a construction "knothole".
Finished product (Field Terrace)
Section 237, Row 15 (top of the Trap)
A sampling of seats at Fenway Park
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.
TCF Bank Stadium. Not for baseball, but still pretty cool to watch being built.
Here's a closer look at the bullpen area. It's hard to tell for sure, but I think there is still an opening to the concourse right above.
Just one lane of traffic and a couple of feet between the fence in right-center and the wall of the parking ramp!
All that's left is to add wood! (Seventh Street circulation ramp.)
Condiments! (complete with faux limestone on the cart -- nice touch)
The splendid view from the roof of the Minikahda building. (Click to enlarge greatly.)

Branding on the plaza
The brown grass was left over from the first attempt at groundbreaking (canceled after the 35W bridge collapse)
OK, just how many servings per container?
The Ballpark Wall! (really stunning)
Seventh Street circulation
The base of the old Met Stadium flagpole. (The plaque refers to the "Flame of Freedom" and not the origin of the pole.)
Ballpark elevation viewed from the promenade (HERC plant) side. (Click to enlarge.)
Up there is where I plan to buy a lot of hot dogs. You can see the vending areas developing rather quickly around the completed portion of the upper concourse.
A great view from the balcony outside the Metropolitan Club
Work in progress to improve the streetscape on Second Avenue
This would have been the HERC side, though it's unclear just how far over the plant the retracted roof would have gone. My fear was always that they would have to shorten the track and more of the roof would have stayed over the ballpark. The only good retractable roof is one which disappears when not in use. I don't think they could have realistically created such a thing.

Then you turn around to this!
Some details are visible here, like the back of an escalator.
