The first completed mural
Looking back toward the park from just beyond the north end of the Northstar platform.
Field access on the visitor's side
The entrance from the service level corridor. (You have to pass the Twins clubhouse door to get there.)
These stairs will meet the skyway.
This looks like a Twins Pub, but is actually the scoreboard operations.
New Concept Drawing - No Roof
The main ticketing area beneath the restaurant.

This is the trapezoid (for lack of a better name) in right center. Be sure to notice section of seats just below the pavilion and above the fence (which I hadn't noticed before). For those who are interested, what looks like an old-style scoreboard is in fact a high-def video board which will look, at times, like an old-fashioned scoreboard.
Rally Hanky (2002 ALCS)
A cold afternoon in 323, but we had our trusty Twins blanket -- made by my mom when Noah was born.
Roped off for the LRT crowd
This looks south and shows how the Northstar tracks are sheltered by the promenade above. This is the side which faces the HERC plant.
A whole bunch of guys working on something.
The former Ford manufacturing plant (now Ford Centre).

Detail of Entry Plaza #4 (north entry from Fifth Street)
First, an overview. The base of the plaza here will meet the base of Sixth Street at Second Avenue.
July 7, 1966 (Click to see the entire scorecard with ads)
This opportunity is half a block up Third Avenue and thousands of people walk right by before and after games.
Before the team came out to warm up, Kirby Puckett, Jr. was playing Frisbee out in center.
Gate 34 Puckett
Impractical, expensive, undeniably cool (Angel Stadium, source LP)
Ye Olde Tyme Vegetable Cart (and its modern cousin)
Solution for a hot night, just inside Gate 34 (that's a cool mist, by the way, not hot steam, which would be kind of cruel)
Some baseball legends (and Ron Coomer)
Panels arriving on flatbed trailers in front of the Twins' dugout.
