The right field overhang is in place, and the first base stands are starting to go in.
The media all turned out!
Some brick work out in the centerfield pavilion.
The Carew gate ticket windows have grown a small awning.
This is as close as I could get to a pedestrian-eye view of Seventh Street (looking west away from downtown). It's inviting, not imposing, and remarkably dignified.
Frost on the pumpkins, snow on the plaza
Now, why is there horse shit on the street next to Target Field? (I saw it in two places. Mounted police maybe?)
I could gaze at this streetscape all day. It isn't perfect, but as a model for Minneapolis, I love it. (Except the Biff, of course. Click to enlarge.)
This would be a beautiful streetscape if there were ANY people.
Wow! Looking good.
The lights have covers on the top, presumably to reduce light pollution
Rally Hanky (2002 ALCS)
Now we know what the English phone booths were for...
A skyway-level view down Seventh Street.
Sky through steel.
How many times did we water down our field as kids? More times than we played games, that's for sure!
Night games are much preferred by the players at Target Field. You can see why.
Having fun. Installing limestone. Good gig.

Big board, as viewed from section 327, row 9.
New Year's Eve, 2008
Handshakes all around (there's gonna be a lot of that over the next few weeks)
I know these are giants bats with hops growing inside, but... Hmm...
This would have been the HERC side, though it's unclear just how far over the plant the retracted roof would have gone. My fear was always that they would have to shorten the track and more of the roof would have stayed over the ballpark. The only good retractable roof is one which disappears when not in use. I don't think they could have realistically created such a thing.
Such promise. (Click to enlarge.)
