The Target Field grass, it turns out, will be green. (This is a photo representing the concept of grass only. The actual Target Field grass apparently will not contain dirt patches, weeds, or dandelions. Imagine that -- if you can!)
Detail at Gate 6
The brick has been tinted where the circulation ramp meets the admin building.

How many times did we water down our field as kids? More times than we played games, that's for sure!
Legend's Club, Section E (Click to enlarge greatly.)
