Party deck down the right field line
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.
This view looks up Fifth Street toward downtown and shows how the LRT tracks sort of snuggle up to the ballpark.
The Lincoln Saltdogs (and a promotional Nerd)
Locations for ticket machines near the Hrbek outdoor plaza
New Concept Drawing - No Roof
This view looks through the opening in the fence where the crosswalk will be.
The littlest Twins fan: Truman
Did I mention that the cheerleaders looked pretty sharp?
This is NOT Twins Territory anymore
The pink thing is a mascot. (Actually, with a damn fine mascot actor underneath.)
Tony Oliva, R. T. Rybak and Mike Opat
Actual LRT tracks are now in the street, and buses now pass over them before entering the transit hub.
Two signs visible from beyond the confines of the ballpark.
Field access on the visitor's side
The dessert carts came out earlier, and looked even better than last year.
I noticed this detail while taking the previous picture. I figure that it must be the VIP entrance from the surface parking lot. I don't think there is any parking inside the ballpark, so this entrance will likely be for suite-dwellers and other VIPs, though I can't say for sure whether players will enter here.
This is a closer look at the steel work.
This is the revised version of the center field pavilion (without the restaurant). It looks like there are no seats, just some ledges for people to sit on. It reminds me of the seating on the "bridge" which sticks out of the new Guthrie Theater. Anything which lands in the trees will presumably be a home run, so the "411" sign is apparently just for fun.
Skyline to the left of me, jokers to the right, here I am, stuck in the outfield with you... (click to enlarge)
Here is the most recent outfield configuration, captured from the animation video. We probably shouldn't make too much of the logos seen on the scoreboard: Best Buy, Dairy Queen, Target, Pepsi, Dodge and Qwest...
This is the Metropolitan Club as viewed from the future Ballpark Authority office space.
