They could not help the Twins on this night.
Sometime in the late 1980s: B ramp is under construction. Not yet built: Target Center, I-394 and the A ramp.

A skyway-level view down Seventh Street.
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.
We took refuge for a time in the Twins Pub where you can drink a beer (or just hang out) and listen to some ballpark tunes. The organ is decorated with a TC (of course) and what looked like drawings which Sue has received from kids.
Off-topic, but this gigantic, cool, retro sign is just across the street from S&CH. Why? I don't know. Might look nice on top of one of those municipal parking ramps...
I took this picture from the Overlook at great personal risk, because everything Thome was hitting was landing out that direction.
OK, just how many servings per container?
Typical standing room crowd which started early and lasted the entire game.

A little higher angle shows how the two stations are close to one another but distinctly separate. The oval, glass-enclosed area is the entrance from the Northstar platform below into the ballpark. The LRT platform is comparable to the other stations along that route.
Sharing and Caring Hands, as viewed from the ballpark site about a block away. Note transaction in progress in the shadows.
The bridge is Seventh Street.
This looks south and shows the track configuration for Northstar. The platform shown is just a placeholder. To the best of my knowledge, concept drawings for this platform have not been released. Keep in mind, this is NOT part of the ballpark project. It is completely separate.
From the roof of the B ramp, you can see just how futile it will be to get a glimpse of the action.
Roll-up metal doors visible at right.
Skyline to the left of me, jokers to the right, here I am, stuck in the outfield with you... (click to enlarge)
Here's the Northstar platform.
It was in and then quickly out of his glove. You gotta make that play.

From the Downtown Council's 2025 Plan, a Metrodome "Revelopment" and a strong indication of where they think a new Vikings stadium should go.
