The view through a construction "knothole".
I suppose that one day my son will graduate from Mrs. Fields to Hooters. At least he won't have to travel too far. *Shudder*
Here's the current overview from the south side of the B ramp (from which the banner at the top of this page was culled).

You are forgiven for wondering whether architect Tom Oslund is, in fact, a visitor from the future.
I'll admit that this makes me nervous. It's pretty easy to step into the path of a train (which is true at various points along the line, but still...)
The Pohlads were loose. A-Rod looked, um, you decide.
From the roof of the B ramp, you can see just how futile it will be to get a glimpse of the action.
This is the revised version of the center field pavilion (without the restaurant). It looks like there are no seats, just some ledges for people to sit on. It reminds me of the seating on the "bridge" which sticks out of the new Guthrie Theater. Anything which lands in the trees will presumably be a home run, so the "411" sign is apparently just for fun.
A cold afternoon in 323, but we had our trusty Twins blanket -- made by my mom when Noah was born.

What can you see from up there? Some say not much.

You have to wonder just what happened here. Will it remain forever embedded in cement?

One half of those windows are well-used.
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.
Not much facade left to be finished at this point.
This is some of the signage in place for concession stands.

Most of the main concourse is filled with construction materials...

That is pretty close... (Grandstand)
Compare this picture, from the open house in March, with the one above and you'll see that some furniture reconfiguration has taken place.
That warning sign doesn't mention anything about the potential for bludgeoning or limb removal by the revolving doors...
At the end of the balcony you can see down the promenade.
