Looking down Sixth Avenue toward the plaza
OK, just how many servings per container?
Click on this photo to see what it looked like on this spot 101 years ago (I'm not kidding)
No admittance -- yet! Note that you can see the seating bolts which are in place already.

Such promise. (Click to enlarge.)
2007, Noah's first game (Torii's last)
The lot within the lot.
From about two blocks away you can finally get an idea of what it looks like. Just to my left (but out of view) was a valet parking stand where a limo was idling.
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.
The knothole (sans view of anything interesting)
Target Plaza looking toward the grandstand
The bridge is Seventh Street.
Gate 6 Oliva, with the 573 Club looming large over it (I wonder how Tony feels about that)
This appears to be the floor to the home dugout!
The Guthrie Theater's Wurtele Thrust Stage seating
The proposed wooden screen covering the circulation ramp on Fifth Street (at left is the equivalent screen on Seventh Street).
Large staircases, a staple of recent Populous (nee HOK) projects, are all over the place.

A view into the park down Sixth Street from just beyond Hennepin. Note that one side of the street contains century-old, classic buildings -- structures which are likely to last another century or more. The other side, not so much. (Click the image to see what it looked like from exactly the same spot 97 years ago.)
This would be a beautiful streetscape if there were ANY people.
The HERC side, viewed from Fifth Street.
The images on that wall appear to be of great Twins moments in history.
I realized I've never shown how the walkway over Seventh Street meets the A ramp
