The scoreboard terminates the view on Fifth Street as seen from Hennepin
The spruced up triangle really doesn't show much connection with the ballpark.
How many times did we water down our field as kids? More times than we played games, that's for sure!
Viewed from another angle, you can see that the bullpens now sit beneath the upper deck outfield seating.

Another over-my-head shot

One more exterior view shows that, while the original look was attractive in a way, it seems to be a variation on the look of the Washington ballpark (albeit with a much more coherent collection of elements).
