In case you don't know, that's Earl Battey.
As mentioned earlier, one of the best climate-controlled views of construction is from the 7th floor elevator lobby in the A ramp. (That's Noah getting his first glimpse of the new ballpark.)
New section labels, but some curious choices.

The finished product.
Typical standing room crowd which started early and lasted the entire game.
Home Plate Terrace -- really great seats; maybe my personal, budget-based favorite
The glass area seen here is one of the warm-up areas.
20 minutes to get from our seat to the street. Miss this place? Nah.
A mysterious smile from within a very deep planter!
This is a good overview of the spot where the Northstar (bottom) and LRT (top) will intersect.

There's a great, big, beautiful tomorrow! (I loved this place as a kid.)
A mass of rebar and complicated cable runs ready for a pour.
The Ron Coomer corner features a bar.

An early concept drawing for the site
Look beyond the gigantic hand (a hounds tooth jacket? really?) and you'll get a glimpse of the main grandstand configuration. The two (or is it three?) levels of suites are visible, as is the design of the so-called "split upper deck," and the extensive use of limestone for decorative accents. Let's hope these little touches don't get cut as costs increase, because they make a nice tie-in from the outside of the park to the inside. Of most interest to me is the way that the very best seats are physically separated from all the rest of the seats by that limestone. There will be virtually no way to sneak into these seats. On one level, that's a somewhat sad design feature...
Good seats, but no scoreboard or sky.
Condiments! (complete with faux limestone on the cart -- nice touch)
Perched welder on the top of the canopy.
