From an earlier visit: Don't bother with those escalators either. They were also roped off. And how about a bench? Or a planter? Or even a trash can? That woman is doing the only thing she can: leaning up against a post to do her texting.
I took this picture just moments before Morneau's homer landed almost exactly where I had been standing. If only I hadn't wanted to watch the game...
There's a great, big, beautiful tomorrow! (I loved this place as a kid.)
I'm not sure why there's a wreath on Gate 3. (I quickly checked the headlines for any dreaded Killebrew news. Whew.) It looks to be in celebration, maybe of the move.

Oh, a flag pole will be so much more...dignified

If you want, you can ask those folks how the game is going -- and even get a little bit of info from the big screen (Grandstand)
These stairs will go up to the centerfield pavilion.

This would be a beautiful streetscape if there were ANY people.
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.
Just think: It could look like this!
