The Ceremony (VIP in the crowd)
Ballpark elevation viewed from the promenade (HERC plant) side. (Click to enlarge.)
This is the LRT bridge under construction as viewed from the east looking west. The ballpark facade would be at the left in this photo.
Night games are much preferred by the players at Target Field. You can see why.
Looking down what was Third Avenue, and will be a freeway entrance ramp beneath the outfield stands.
Since pictures of the ballpark are forbidden, perhaps you'll enjoy this shot of the lovely apple tree in my front yard.
Inexplicable bright yellow baseball amid the trees.
The Hennepin Grille appears to feature chicken, brats, and fries.
Note that the sign in the background will NOT be changed because "Twins Way" doesn't extend this far north.

The main concourse is a very busy place at all times.

The heretofore unseen north facade (click to enlarge). Does it look like a ballpark? And what's with the bamboo?
Just up the foul line, it looks like the base of the wall in foul territory on the right side.
Guthrie Theater (original design colors)
A few weeks ago there were sand volleyball courts here. When the park opens, this will be surface parking. Maybe one day there will be something more interesting built on top of that parking...
The overhang as seen through the unnumbered gate
The model still shows the Batters Eye Club, which is no longer part of the design.
Hey! That limestone looks familiar!
Twins president Dave St. Peter presents his list of fan suggestions to the Ballpark Authority
