It was in and then quickly out of his glove. You gotta make that play.
Preparations underway (Field View)
A recent view of the Bud deck in progress
A little ground's crew action in the first inning the other night.
I don't think this will remain a knothole, but the view is pretty cool.
Auxiliary scoreboard (note to TF principles: this is a very good idea)
Dude, this is NOT a multi-use facility.
The main ticketing area beneath the restaurant.
Two train stations
A portrait of the 573 Club.
This is the trapezoid (for lack of a better name) in right center. Be sure to notice section of seats just below the pavilion and above the fence (which I hadn't noticed before). For those who are interested, what looks like an old-style scoreboard is in fact a high-def video board which will look, at times, like an old-fashioned scoreboard.
An arch under construction.
This is where you will put out your butts -- I mean enjoy some pretty flowers.
Poles through the gap
This is an angle I have not used very much, from the top of the Fifth Street ramp. Because the wall is so tall (forget about watching a game from here for free -- OK, maybe with a step stool) I have to hold the camera up over my head and just snap, hoping I get something good. Here I did. This view then looks to the southwest.
Shh. Don't tell those people working behind the ticket windows about these automated ticketing machines (underneath the plaza stairs)
Met Stadium on May 17, 1975 (Twins vs. Brewers featuring Hank Aaron)

Another B ramp glimpse (don't loiter here!)
Skyline to the left of me, jokers to the right, here I am, stuck in the outfield with you... (click to enlarge)
A trailer village has sprung up to the south.
Location for automated ticket machines
The brown grass was left over from the first attempt at groundbreaking (canceled after the 35W bridge collapse)
Open house skeptics
I set up my late inning "office" at the drink rail behind section 206
The green in question (click for very large version)

Also viewed from the B ramp, that's the upper deck in left field.
