Outside the Metropolitan Club, photos of all the other major league ballparks
Snow-blowing the field
The Northstar station.
Champion's Club moat (windows are found at the base of the limestone behind the seats -- not visible in this image)
This is the LRT bridge under construction as viewed from the east looking west. The ballpark facade would be at the left in this photo.
Two signs visible from beyond the confines of the ballpark.
At TF, you never know when you may bump into a Pohlad
The east wall of the building looks like it will be the first part completed. These are probably supports for the plaza, and they hug the very edge of the site.
Flowers. Real flowers.
The green in question (click for very large version)
Condiments! (complete with faux limestone on the cart -- nice touch)
Flowers and Hall-of-Fame plaques. Very nice.
Another view of the escalator, which apparently comes preassembled!

Twins in HD on the big board
A spot that's always full!
The bases for the player statues have been recently upgraded.

"Original" or "Dinger" Dog
Here you can see the real beauty of the Seventh Street side, and get a solid sense of why the overall design really works. The building's purpose is clearly visible, there are numerous connections from inside to outside, scale is nicely mitigated, the stone is attractively used, materials are pleasantly mixed and truly complementary. It's just a winner in so many ways.

Here's a correction: The LRT platform will actually be able to load outbound trains from both sides.
