Working on the main concourse right about directly behind the plate.
8:12 PM It is now in the area where, if it gets down far enough, it will shine into the eyes of a right-handed hitter.
The reverse angle shows that the signage will only partially obscure views from the top of the ramp. The wall is pretty high up there, so you'll need something to stand on, but it appears that this is one of the so-called "knotholes".
A view into the Legend's Club
Here is Seventh Street viewed from the west looking toward downtown. This will probably be the most pedestrian-friendly side (other than the plaza), but only if there is some psychological barrier between the people on foot and the people in their dangerously fast-moving automobiles.

Yes, TC is smiling.
Marquette looking south
First, an overview. The base of the plaza here will meet the base of Sixth Street at Second Avenue.
In the top of the 9th, the sun hit our backs and summer took one last long look.
Two plazas in Spain. (Brad and I were pretending to steal coins from the fountain. We were all just so darn funny back in high school, eh?)
Directly above the ceiling here is the hidden concourse which served the upper deck prior to the renovation. That concourse was closed off to the public, but became a service level for ballpark employees. It's one of the many quirks which will be lost when the wrecking ball takes the place away.
The same section seen from Target Center. Yep, looks like bridge supports.

Left field bench seating
Love the red flowers -- just like the original concept drawings. That NEVER happens.
Puckett atrium menu part 2 (Those prices match elsewhere in the ballpark.)
Some of your fellow BPMers at a game in May of 2010 (we had almost the whole section)
Good seats, but no scoreboard or sky.
Detroit got this part right!
Looking the other direction, again from Ford Centre, you can see what's going on over the tracks. This will be a public promenade.
At Comerica Park, some aisles have railings and some do not.
For those not wishing to suffer through my media rant, please enjoy this picture of my lilacs in full bloom.
At the corner of the Pro Shop.
Very interesting detail starting to appear here.
Ketchup, mustard, relish, mustard, ketchup
Nine spots for hops bats.
What can you see from up there? Some say not much.
This little pathway snakes between the LRT tracks and the Environmental Services Building, emptying into the parking area surrounding the HERC. It could be for maintenance, but it looks more like it's for convenience.
