The season was perfectly bookended by Mick Sterling on the plaza
Ben took this picture of me (carrying my mostly useless camera) and Twins rep Chris Iles down by the admin building
This is the plaza as viewed from the A ramp.
You'll be able to park here for a quick stop at the Pro Shop or ticket window.
Here's a quick look into the layout of the Metropolitan Club.
Giant screened images! (573 Club, my back to Seventh Ave windows)
Not much facade left to be finished at this point.
Another view of the escalator, which apparently comes preassembled!
How many times did we water down our field as kids? More times than we played games, that's for sure!
The Guthrie Theater's Wurtele Thrust Stage seating
It looks like the Target-themed signage has spilled out to the surrounding area (this was taken from the entryway to the B ramp from Third -- the 394 entrance ramp tunnel)
Just one lane of traffic and a couple of feet between the fence in right-center and the wall of the parking ramp!
This is the Carew gate covered in plastic.
One thing that the design disguises nicely is that the Pro Shop (and other key components) are actually built over lanes of freeway. That can clearly be seen here.
This is the back of the Cisco Field scoreboard, showing video to folks out on the plaza.
Indications that club seating (the wider spaced areas above each dugout) will be a major presence in the lower deck
The first pitch.
The tower is actually finished, though it looks like a work in progress.
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.
I do love the upper concourse. Feels like home already.
Skywalk over Seventh
Desolate. Dirty. Mysterious. Expensive. Unlikely.
Complicated pedestrian crossing
Three weeks ago this was a patch of scruffy trees. Now it's a patio. In case you were wondering, that's where I've been...
Outside, lots of window space

5:45 PM, section 327, row 9, standing: sunshine.
A collection of support pillars for the left field pavilion.

Large staircases, a staple of recent Populous (nee HOK) projects, are all over the place.
I have no idea what this is or does, but as gear goes, it's totally boss, man. (Attached to a railing just off of the Trap)
Viewed from a different angle, it seems fair to wonder is some of those seats will have slightly obscured views. Yet, if they're cheap, that's not a problem.
Shh. Don't tell those people working behind the ticket windows about these automated ticketing machines (underneath the plaza stairs)
Looking up Seventh Street to the west
