The finished product.
There's a great, big, beautiful tomorrow! (I loved this place as a kid.)
Emergency access as viewed from outside the ballpark
The 1963 team won 91 games! (Click to enlarge and see the names)
A new address for the Admin building
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).
Detroit got this part right!
Mussina's first pitch. (Playing 3rd: Not A-Rod)
Circulation ramps: Wrigley (classic, integrated) and Kauffman (modern, external)

"I've never seen them do that before," said a Metropolitan Club waiter as I snapped this picture.
Condiments! (complete with faux limestone on the cart -- nice touch)

TC gets ready to release the hounds. (Kids get to run the bases after Sunday games.)

Artist at (very painstaking) work
Auxiliary scoreboard (note to TF principles: this is a very good idea)
Ballpark elevation viewed from the promenade (HERC plant) side. (Click to enlarge.)
In March, we were still only imagining baseball through those windows.
Standing, standing, standing.
Another piece of the neighborhood puzzle: the Northstar platform.
You can get a hand-carved sandwich, or ice cream while pondering the career of Julio Becquer.
