Before the team came out to warm up, Kirby Puckett, Jr. was playing Frisbee out in center.
The circulation ramp on the north now has its louver framing.
This is where the plaza meets First Avenue
"Hey, Ma, it says here we go in at gate 34. Must be all the way around on the other side!" Seriously, though, this is a really inspired idea.
This will be a great sight on game nights.
His body language might as well be the box score.
At the corner of the Pro Shop.
At one point, we thought these windows might represent one of the so-called knotholes. But nope. Nothing to see here. (Nearest I can tell, there will be no view of the playing field whatsoever from the Seventh Street sidewalk.)
Wright's Marin County Hall of Justice, San Rafael, California (1959)
The lone light standard and one of those "entry beacons."
Now looking north, the tracks emerge from beneath Seventh Street as freight tracks only. The Northstar line ends at the northwest corner of the ballpark. One day, however, you can bet that other passenger trains will approach from the southwest metro on these tracks -- if our legislators are smart and persistent, that is.

That is pretty close... (Grandstand)
Lots of people are doing it.
Don Swanson, left, in-coming commander of the Richfield American Legion, and Joe Kennedy, right, out-going commander, are pictured with the Legion's new flag pole, which once stood at old Metropolitan Stadium. (Click to enlarge.)
I love views like this. They show just how much Target Field shimmers. (Photo by Jeff Ewer)

Spring of 1982 (click to enlarge greatly -- can you pick out Kent Hrbek?)
With the engine behind us, we got a real sense of how fast we were going by looking out the front (back) window
This is the last hope for so-called knot-hole views. I'm skeptical.
The east wall of the building looks like it will be the first part completed. These are probably supports for the plaza, and they hug the very edge of the site.
This view clearly shows the curve in the left field stands and the relationship of the first row with the playing field (no overhang to speak of in left).
The plaza has been finished off just beautifully.
A detailed crowd shot. Click to enlarge greatly.
The back gates at Comerica park, like everything else, a bit overwrought.
Lots of self-portraits were taken here after the final out.
This view, from the Minnekahda building (or possibly a predecessor), looks toward the right field corner. The City Market, at left, occupied the land where the B ramp and Target Plaza now stand (over I-394). And the Overlook now juts out just a little beyond where that driveway enters the railyard.
