A closer look at the louvers
Playing surface dirt out there? Maybe. (click to enlarge)
Fan number 3,030,673 came through this gate a few moments after I took this picture.
Integrating the administration building was really a great idea. Actually, there will be more things inside than just offices, but that will probably be some sweet space.
Not me, but it might as well be.
I noticed this detail while taking the previous picture. I figure that it must be the VIP entrance from the surface parking lot. I don't think there is any parking inside the ballpark, so this entrance will likely be for suite-dwellers and other VIPs, though I can't say for sure whether players will enter here.
A very busy place, as viewed from Target Center.
Another piece of the neighborhood puzzle: the Northstar platform.
Killebrew's mammoth shot on June 3, 1967 is currently memorialized on a wall at the Mall of America
This is the staircase (ramp?) leading up to the trapezoid. Nice flagpole too. You'll be able to find me and Ben McEvers at the base of that flagpole on opening day in 2010!

You'll be able to park here for a quick stop at the Pro Shop or ticket window.
Wind veil install from across Seventh
The Fifth Street side is pretty busy. There's a small street entrance to the B ramp, then ticket booths and an entrance gate, a rare exterior section not covered in limestone, the wooden screen covering the circulation ramps, the administration building, and finally (just out of view) the interface with Northstar. All of that sits behind the LRT action. How pedestrians will interact with this side of the park is a great mystery to me. You know that Metro Transit won't be letting them cross the tracks anywhere but at either end of the block...
From last week, you can see the piers taking shape. I believe that the front row, visible here as just forms and reinforcing rods, is the front edge of the plaza.
Mystery door on Seventh Street...
Love the red flowers -- just like the original concept drawings. That NEVER happens.
Roped off for the LRT crowd
Ticket window at Gate 29/Carew
Note reflected sunset (7:30 PM). Could be a worry...
B ramp glimpse

Dude, this is NOT a multi-use facility.
Hops! (conceptual only)
They could not help the Twins on this night.
The view from our seats. I took this picture while standing, and the railing would prove mildly problematic when I sat down -- but not as much as my scorecard, which I always seemed to be holding right in Vic's view of the plate (she told me so).
