The overhang as seen through the unnumbered gate
Hey! That limestone looks familiar!
Looking up Sixth Street, now barricaded for plaza extension.
A mass of rebar and complicated cable runs ready for a pour.
This is the upper deck in Anaheim
This is the start of construction on the Northstar platform which will feed under the bridge and to a lobby with escalators and elevators just inside the ballpark's public concourse. Compared to the ballpark construction, this looks kind of puny. But the work just to get the trains to come has been positively Herculean. Future generations will look back at this with awe.
Infield dirt used as accents
The Pro Shop.
This appears to be the floor to the home dugout!
Someone please get those poor people a drink of water. (Gate 34, after the game had started)
The reverse angle shows that the signage will only partially obscure views from the top of the ramp. The wall is pretty high up there, so you'll need something to stand on, but it appears that this is one of the so-called "knotholes".
Hot dawgs! Getcher hot dawgs!
The east wall of the building looks like it will be the first part completed. These are probably supports for the plaza, and they hug the very edge of the site.
Lots of folks working behind those ticket windows
This is also the promenade, where the first indications of the final texture of the walkway can be seen. This layer of concrete is going on top of gravel (as has been done over on the plaza).
I still counted 11 flag poles...
This is as close as I could get to a pedestrian-eye view of the main entrance. This is what you'll see as you enter by coming down Sixth Street.
Spring of 1982 (click to enlarge greatly -- can you pick out Kent Hrbek?)
Rod Carew will greet you, but he's sorely in need of a home plate for reference. (Killebrew is too.)
Polo Grounds facade, obscured
We bumped into Jerry Bell (at right)!
Poles through the gap
Is it possible to take a bad picture of this building?
Gate 29 "Carew" is at right.
A distinct misstep, ostensibly to guard against missteps. But methinks I smell a lawyer...
Storage tracks in the foreground.
That's my mom. She scored the whole game on her Gameday program (bought for just $1 on the opening night special -- thanks guys!)
