Here's what they do in April at Comerica Park
Hubert's remains the only sports bar within site of the Dome after 28 years of its existence. It's a cautionary tale.
"I've never seen them do that before," said a Metropolitan Club waiter as I snapped this picture.
Site of the proposed new Atlanta Braves ballpark. Look familiar?
Killebrew taught, "Always make your autograph legible, boys."
I know you've seen these, but is there a better finishing touch anywhere else in baseball? I know not one.
Greatest spot in the city for cooking up some hot dogs. And would you kill for that grill?
Puckett atrium menu part 2 (Those prices match elsewhere in the ballpark.)
A little more imaginative is the circulation building for Northstar.
Killebrew's mammoth shot on June 3, 1967 is currently memorialized on a wall at the Mall of America

I will take a picture of just about anything.
The heretofore unseen north facade (click to enlarge). Does it look like a ballpark? And what's with the bamboo?

Footings for the Seventh Street walkway from the A ramp.
Clyde Doeppner proudly displays colored bricks he scavenged from the Met during its demolition. These are the colors in question!
Did you know that the out-of-town scoreboard is covered by a black chain 1ink fence?
Here's the field of posts which will support the third base side of the grandstand. Some walls have started to appear about where the Northstar riders will enter the park.
A very unique space
All three seating mounds
I don't think this will remain a knothole, but the view is pretty cool.
