Nuts on Clark (a couple blocks north of Wrigley Field)
Viewed from another angle, you can see that the bullpens now sit beneath the upper deck outfield seating.
Rally Hanky (2002 ALCS)
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...
Auxiliary scoreboard (note to TF principles: this is a very good idea)
Air conditioning condensation on the floor.
Denard Span ready, in a swoop of sunlight.
Larry DiVito, mowing
That group was working on something very carefully, but I couldn't tell just what it was.
After the rain. (We were in the wrong spot to see the rainbow...)
I have no idea what this is or does, but as gear goes, it's totally boss, man. (Attached to a railing just off of the Trap)

This view, from the Minnekahda building (or possibly a predecessor), looks toward the right field corner. The City Market, at left, occupied the land where the B ramp and Target Plaza now stand (over I-394). And the Overlook now juts out just a little beyond where that driveway enters the railyard.

A closer look at the bridge and walls. You can see where the tracks will be laid.
Looking across the top of the batter's eye
Here is Seventh Street viewed from the west looking toward downtown. This will probably be the most pedestrian-friendly side (other than the plaza), but only if there is some psychological barrier between the people on foot and the people in their dangerously fast-moving automobiles.
Would you have spotted that Twin? When you were five years old?
For reference, here's that spot on the model.
A path for workers -- don't touch the plaza! -- in front of three giant Chia pets
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.
Team pennant. (Click to enlarge.)
The circulation ramp on the north now has its louver framing.
