Rooftop scaffolding, for the wind veil installation?
The model still shows the Batters Eye Club, which is no longer part of the design.
Gate 6 is quite large
The right field overhang as seen from Seventh Street (with dude)
Knothole non-view #1
Then you turn around to this!
The view from the upper concourse.
Ballpark elevation viewed from Seventh Street. (Click to enlarge.)
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).
Twins president Dave St. Peter presents his list of fan suggestions to the Ballpark Authority
The former Ford manufacturing plant (now Ford Centre).
The wooden louvers are in on Fifth Street
Compare this picture, from the open house in March, with the one above and you'll see that some furniture reconfiguration has taken place.
The outfield stands taking shape.
Here's a detail from the above image, showing the LED strips up close.
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.
The first pitch.
Look closely and you'll see limestone on the front of the press box!
We bumped into Jerry Bell (at right)!
The sign reads, "Mortenson Radio Channels".
Site of the proposed new Atlanta Braves ballpark. Look familiar?
Sign installer dude
I think that's a pig up there on that vane!
Looking south (toward Seventh Street).
An overview of the model display.
Path of quick escape.
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).
And another angle looking at the overhang area of the right field pavilion. This looks to me like a great area to watch a game.
Here's where I was when the alarm went off, and though the siren wasn't terribly loud, at least one guy is plugging his ears.
The right field overhang is in place, and the first base stands are starting to go in.
One of those funny little sections above the entrance stairs
View level as seen through the Seventh Street circulation ramp
