The saddest event
Concrete molds are being removed!
The big glove will go on that circle. Note the gap between the plaza and the ramp. That's 394 you can see through there.
Fan number 3,030,673 came through this gate a few moments after I took this picture.
Through the windows of the Metropolitan Club you can see one of the displays of Met Stadium memorabilia.
Just up the foul line, it looks like the base of the wall in foul territory on the right side.
Standing, standing, standing.
Trains now rumble regularly beneath the promenade.
This is the Suite Level. There are multiple suites between each pillar, and there will be seating on the area in front of the suites which currently looks like it could be a walkway.
Nuts on Clark (a couple blocks north of Wrigley Field)
The ballpark development area expanded by 1000 feet in each direction
Not much facade left to be finished at this point.
The lot within the lot.
I love these upper neighborhoods.

Thanks for all the hard work out there, Cold Safety-Line Dudes. (I'm glad that my job does not require safety lines...)

This is a slightly blurry view of the pavilion in center. It has a quirky shape, but one which is completely consistent with the overall ballpark design. Nice work there. You can also get a glimpse of the greenery which will rise above the fences.
B ramp at left, ballpark at right (and visible far away through the tiny crack)
The outfield stands taking shape.
Twins president Dave St. Peter presents his list of fan suggestions to the Ballpark Authority

First, an overview. The base of the plaza here will meet the base of Sixth Street at Second Avenue.
The view down Sixth Street toward the ballpark site. A pedestrian bridge will extend this street right into the main entrance of the park. The regrettable facade of Target Center is on the left. Butler Square is on the right. Click on the image to see what it looked like on this very spot about 100 years ago.
