The Metrodome has sure been tarted up.
Thanks for all the hard work out there, Cold Safety-Line Dudes. (I'm glad that my job does not require safety lines...)
Complicated pedestrian crossing
I think this promenade over the railroad tracks needs a name. How about the Halsey Hall Promenade? (Please do not throw cigar butts onto the tracks!)
A new restaurant going in at Fifth Street and Second Avenue
For $19.95 you can load up your plate (one trip only)
Rod Carew will greet you, but he's sorely in need of a home plate for reference. (Killebrew is too.)
The brown grass was left over from the first attempt at groundbreaking (canceled after the 35W bridge collapse)
Then you turn around to this!
Peering through Gate 34
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.
Section 117, Row WC (applies to all the back rows under the Legends Club seating)
Um, I think that guy is out.
There are no caddies in baseball.
The LRT station, sitting in a brand new urban canyon, takes shape.
Here we are waiting for the first train to arrive at the station (Nov 14).
The media all turned out!
Saints between innings
A view into the Legend's Club
The brick has been tinted where the circulation ramp meets the admin building.
A mass of rebar and complicated cable runs ready for a pour.

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.
At Comerica Park, some aisles have railings and some do not.
The view from our seats. I took this picture while standing, and the railing would prove mildly problematic when I sat down -- but not as much as my scorecard, which I always seemed to be holding right in Vic's view of the plate (she told me so).
I never think of Rod Carew as a first baseman. But he was.
This looks from the base of the stairs, behind the big pillars, toward the street.
The splendid view from the roof of the Minikahda building. (Click to enlarge greatly.)
The view from my seats in Section 237 (The Trap), Row 1 (can't see much of center field without standing up...)
The 1963 team won 91 games! (Click to enlarge and see the names)
Because of the scale, it's sometimes hard to realize that there are actual guys down there doing the tough work! Here they are getting ready to pour a footing.
Stairs down to Seventh Street now have the start of railings
