Viewed from the A ramp.

A little ground's crew action in the first inning the other night.
The right field overhang is in place, and the first base stands are starting to go in.
The model still shows the Batters Eye Club, which is no longer part of the design.

Plaza extension reaches toward First Avenue
This is as close as I could get to a pedestrian-eye view of Seventh Street (looking west away from downtown). It's inviting, not imposing, and remarkably dignified.
The process of building the canopy is really amazing to watch.
Griffith Stadium (notch visible in lower photo at far left)
I was surprised at how close those upper deck seats seem. From the plaza, you feel like you can reach out and touch them. It really adds to the impression of overall compactness.

Click on this photo to see what it looked like on this spot 101 years ago (I'm not kidding)
Condiments! (complete with faux limestone on the cart -- nice touch)
This isn't a very good picture, but it is the current view of the inside of a suite.
Circulation ramps: Wrigley (classic, integrated) and Kauffman (modern, external)
Glove from above
Looking across the top of the batter's eye
Hardware in the window! (But why are there three trophies? 1924?)
This is what it looked like during the first open house in March.
I took this picture just moments before Morneau's homer landed almost exactly where I had been standing. If only I hadn't wanted to watch the game...
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).
