Serious home dugout work in progress.
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...
Supports for the little sections in the outfield.
There are some great banners on fencing down Target Way. I'm not sure just who sees them.

Looking across the top of the B parking ramp. Notice that signage will block any attempts at seeing the game from up there. Also take note of the glassed in area which is part club and part office space for the Ballpark Authority.
Detroit got this part right!
From the roof of the B ramp, you can see just how futile it will be to get a glimpse of the action.

The Carew gate ticket windows have grown a small awning.

Opening day, 2010
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.
Knothole non-view #2
The first pitch.
Actual LRT tracks are now in the street, and buses now pass over them before entering the transit hub.
On this day, George was handling fruits and veggies right inside gate 34.
Just one lane of traffic and a couple of feet between the fence in right-center and the wall of the parking ramp!
Section 101, Row 27
It was in and then quickly out of his glove. You gotta make that play.
This is the Metropolitan Club as viewed from the future Ballpark Authority office space.

Plaza overview from the A ramp
This view looks up Fifth Street toward downtown and shows how the LRT tracks sort of snuggle up to the ballpark.
Showing more of the context for the louvers.
