Revised outfield configuration (courtesy HOK Sport)
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.
After the rain. (We were in the wrong spot to see the rainbow...)

This is the LRT path looking from the ballpark site (behind me) toward downtown. The line currently ends about two blocks up this street. This bridge over I-394 is also being partially rebuilt as part of the ballpark project.
The outfield stands taking shape.
One of the many supports being built over the tracks.
This is the upper deck in Anaheim
Stairs down to Seventh Street now have the start of railings
Fun with section counting!
Here's what they do in April at Comerica Park
The louvres on Fifth have been completely filled in
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...
