"I've never seen them do that before," said a Metropolitan Club waiter as I snapped this picture.
The limestone now wraps around onto the HERC side.
Hops! (conceptual only)
Seat logos in place
The Ballpark Wall! (really stunning)
Touring the Rapid Park site (L-R: Commissioners Wade, Vekich, Sykora, Cramer, and tour guide Chuck Ballentine, source: RP)
The scoreboard also towers over the LRT tracks, which now are functional (though not open) all the way to the park -- and beyond!
At left, across the tracks by that pile of dirt is where the Northstar commuter train platform will be built, and where Twins fans will apparently NOT be able to get a train after night games. (For reference, that's the Fifth Street bridge, with the ballpark site just beyond it. The east corner of Ford Centre is just visible at the right edge of the picture.)
In March, we were still only imagining baseball through those windows.
Here's a curious little room at the end of the circulation ramp. What could they be selling there?
Roll-up metal doors visible at right.
Franchise history before Minnesota. (Click to enlarge.)
Griffith Stadium (notch visible in lower photo at far left)
Seville's certainly will benefit from 81 games a year played about a block away! (When I walked by on this day, the place looked deserted, but I stand corrected!)
Legend's Club, Section E (Click to enlarge greatly.)
This looks toward the middle of the park. The third base side of the Legends Club is to the right up ahead, while the 573 Club is just barely visible at the end of the hallway. It extends to the left.
The rules were clearly posted next to this new entry point on the Seventh Street side. I have no problem with the rules!
This is as close as I could get to a pedestrian-eye view of Seventh Street (looking west away from downtown). It's inviting, not imposing, and remarkably dignified.
The right field foul pole seen against a backdrop of Butler Square (itself a site of great significance in the history of professional baseball in Minneapolis)
Gate 6 Oliva, with the 573 Club looming large over it (I wonder how Tony feels about that)
This is the back of the Cisco Field scoreboard, showing video to folks out on the plaza.
TC caps everywhere! (Is that you?)
Section A, Row WC
The action drew everybody to the top step. (Click to enlarge greatly.)
The littlest Twins fan: Truman
First, an overview. The base of the plaza here will meet the base of Sixth Street at Second Avenue.
"Hey, Ma, it says here we go in at gate 34. Must be all the way around on the other side!" Seriously, though, this is a really inspired idea.
I don't think this will remain a knothole, but the view is pretty cool.
Oh no! Beach ball! But click to enlarge so you can see the wide range of expressions on people's faces. (Photo by Jared Wieseler)
