Upper deck view of the out-of-town scoreboard.
Now from the inside looking at the same area.
That warning sign doesn't mention anything about the potential for bludgeoning or limb removal by the revolving doors...
The bridge is Seventh Street.
September 23, 2007
A true fan out in the bleachers
Those two empty seats in the front row are where we started the game.
And another angle looking at the overhang area of the right field pavilion. This looks to me like a great area to watch a game.
The steel cage expands.
Now looking north, the tracks emerge from beneath Seventh Street as freight tracks only. The Northstar line ends at the northwest corner of the ballpark. One day, however, you can bet that other passenger trains will approach from the southwest metro on these tracks -- if our legislators are smart and persistent, that is.
Grid for the ironwood louvres is in place
Look closely at the overhang. You'll see the on the right it is flush with the fence, and then it sticks out farther and farther as you move toward center. More fun for Michael Cuddyer.
This shows the area where the Northstar platform connects with the ballpark (that translucent oval). Above that is the area which will house the Twins operations offices.
One more time from the third base side.
Gate 29 Carew
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.
Section 117, Row WC (applies to all the back rows under the Legends Club seating)
The walkway under construction in the parking lot just outside the loading dock.
Lots of pix waiting to be seen from Bert's memorable night.
Dancing for the cameras
Here is Seventh Street viewed from the west looking toward downtown. This will probably be the most pedestrian-friendly side (other than the plaza), but only if there is some psychological barrier between the people on foot and the people in their dangerously fast-moving automobiles.
Discovered on the upper concourse!
This is NOT Twins Territory anymore
Look closely and you'll see limestone on the front of the press box!
I never think of Ron Jackson at all.
This was from January 19, 2007, when it looked like wonderful things might never happen here.
These outfield stands will likely remain visible to passersby.

This view clearly shows the curve in the left field stands and the relationship of the first row with the playing field (no overhang to speak of in left).
After the rain. (We were in the wrong spot to see the rainbow...)
