The seating bowl of Citizens Bank Park overlaid on the Target Field site
A view straight on of the Pro Shop area and ticket windows (just barely visible). The piers you see beneath the plaza are already almost completed (see final photo).

Detail of the Puckett wall hanging
Look at all that blank space. Canvas! (What should go on those walls? A giant schedule perhaps?)
The french fry lights were on!
Here you can see the real beauty of the Seventh Street side, and get a solid sense of why the overall design really works. The building's purpose is clearly visible, there are numerous connections from inside to outside, scale is nicely mitigated, the stone is attractively used, materials are pleasantly mixed and truly complementary. It's just a winner in so many ways.
Dan Mehls, Mortenson Construction
Midway Stadium (seen from our tailgating spot across the parking lot)
Do you think somebody's already cooking hot dogs out there?
Speakers spaced evenly among the lights
Twins president Dave St. Peter presents his list of fan suggestions to the Ballpark Authority
I finally found the corner of TF dedicated to the Senators. What a wonderful sight.
The Target Field grass, it turns out, will be green. (This is a photo representing the concept of grass only. The actual Target Field grass apparently will not contain dirt patches, weeds, or dandelions. Imagine that -- if you can!)
The littlest Twins fan: Truman
Some details are visible here, like the back of an escalator.
Signature elements. (And they wonder why we think the real trees look so small...)
Waiting for a train. Reading on the promenade. How urbane.
Also from the B ramp entrance off of Third, a look up at the tiny crack between ballpark and parking ramp
Dan Kenney, my tour guide
Also from the same lobby, other window, a view which will clearly disappear before too long...
The service entrance area in left-center, now with bench seating
The overhang as seen through the unnumbered gate

We bumped into Jerry Bell (at right)!
For reference, here's that spot on the model.
Skyline to the left of me, jokers to the right, here I am, stuck in the outfield with you... (click to enlarge)
A sign that your mall is all but dead: roped off escalators. (This is at about 4:00 PM on a weekday.)
The dessert carts came out earlier, and looked even better than last year.
ATM-style ticket machines have appeared beneath the steps to the B ramp (you can also enter the B ramp directly by walking past the ticket machines)
Very nice Admin glass.
Here's a rack of lights being prepared for lifting into the canopy.
