Can you name that field? (Braemer Park, Edina)
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 admin building (note TF logo on banner)
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.
Stairs and escalator down to the platform
At Comerica Park, some aisles have railings and some do not.
Looking for some detail
Instrument of evil.
Despite what those signs say, every one of these places was selling either snacks or Yankee memorabilia out of its front door. Do you suppose anything like this will spring up anywhere near the new Twins ballpark?
Also viewed from the B ramp, that's the upper deck in left field.

Giant screened images! (573 Club, my back to Seventh Ave windows)
Work on the pavilion in center.
Which way to the skyway? Really??
Through the windows of the Metropolitan Club you can see one of the displays of Met Stadium memorabilia.
I realized I've never shown how the walkway over Seventh Street meets the A ramp
A view straight on of the Pro Shop area and ticket windows (just barely visible). The piers you see beneath the plaza are already almost completed (see final photo).

For some inexplicable reason, a lot of the new parks being built these days feature grand staircases like this one.

Here are some less intrusive things things you can actually get at the ballpark.
Here's the view of the entrance ramp to 394. Looks like they are painting...
Looking through the transit hub
In case you don't know, that's Earl Battey.

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.
