The view from section 210
Another B ramp glimpse (don't loiter here!)
This is what I was working on while my photo was taken (click to see a VERY BIG version).

Nine spots for hops bats.
Two plazas in Spain. (Brad and I were pretending to steal coins from the fountain. We were all just so darn funny back in high school, eh?)
What can you see from up there? Some say not much.
Wayfinding within the B ramp is still a work in progress.
In addition to the Pro Shop facade, you can see more gravel being laid before the final plaza surface is poured.
Hardware in the window! (But why are there three trophies? 1924?)
The littlest Twins fan: Truman
The proposed wooden screen covering the circulation ramp on Fifth Street (at left is the equivalent screen on Seventh Street).
The former Ford manufacturing plant (now Ford Centre).
A little higher angle shows how the two stations are close to one another but distinctly separate. The oval, glass-enclosed area is the entrance from the Northstar platform below into the ballpark. The LRT platform is comparable to the other stations along that route.
Here's the current overview from the south side of the B ramp (from which the banner at the top of this page was culled).
The season was perfectly bookended by Mick Sterling on the plaza
The dessert carts came out earlier, and looked even better than last year.
The Polo Grounds (left) and Shibe Park (Connie Mack Stadium)
One thing that the design disguises nicely is that the Pro Shop (and other key components) are actually built over lanes of freeway. That can clearly be seen here.
This is a slightly blurry view of the pavilion in center. It has a quirky shape, but one which is completely consistent with the overall ballpark design. Nice work there. You can also get a glimpse of the greenery which will rise above the fences.
Section A, Row WC
Gate 6 is quite large
A few weeks ago there were sand volleyball courts here. When the park opens, this will be surface parking. Maybe one day there will be something more interesting built on top of that parking...

Good seats, but no scoreboard or sky.
The main ticketing area beneath the restaurant.
No griping here.
Love the lighted, translucent panel
The plaza as viewed from across the park. The right field overhang section will be built just in from where the plaza supports are.
