It was in and then quickly out of his glove. You gotta make that play.
The Puckett Atrium
It's a great view of the action, though standing here is somewhat discouraged.
Gate 3 "Killebrew"
The bases for the player statues have been recently upgraded.
Playing surface dirt out there? Maybe. (click to enlarge)
You can finally see how the plaza will meet the street on the north side of this emergency exit tower (which will be converted to a regular entrance/exit)
This view clearly shows the curve in the left field stands and the relationship of the first row with the playing field (no overhang to speak of in left).
A collection of support pillars for the left field pavilion.
Yep, that's real grass down there, son.
Looking across the top of the B parking ramp. Notice that signage will block any attempts at seeing the game from up there. Also take note of the glassed in area which is part club and part office space for the Ballpark Authority.
The pouring is taking place at the very bottom of this photo.
Lots of speakers, but in some places, no sound.
Home Run Porch Terrace

Note the gigantic -- and very permanent -- M's on the gates at the base of these stairs.
At left, across the tracks by that pile of dirt is where the Northstar commuter train platform will be built, and where Twins fans will apparently NOT be able to get a train after night games. (For reference, that's the Fifth Street bridge, with the ballpark site just beyond it. The east corner of Ford Centre is just visible at the right edge of the picture.)
Do you know who did this drawing? If so, please tell me so I can give them proper credit.
Section 139, Row 8
Some people will go to work here every day.
