Desolate. Dirty. Mysterious. Expensive. Unlikely.

Notice the temporary railing extensions
Door to the visitor's clubhouse.
Gate 6 Oliva, with the 573 Club looming large over it (I wonder how Tony feels about that)
The Pro Shop
A sidewalk has sprouted between the HERC and the LRT tracks!
Fan number 3,030,673 came through this gate a few moments after I took this picture.

Here's one big problem with a retractable roof: completely terrible seating in left. These scant few seats would have been tucked under the track. No sunshine, no open concourse, it was a terribly kludgy idea. With some hindsight, it's very clear that adding a retractable roof on this small site would have required compromises which would have just been too extensive to tolerate. Without it, the design was free to grow into something much more memorable.
A little ground's crew action in the first inning the other night.
LRT station has appeared.
The lights have covers on the top, presumably to reduce light pollution
Work in progress.
An arch under construction.
A distinct misstep, ostensibly to guard against missteps. But methinks I smell a lawyer...
One thing that the design disguises nicely is that the Pro Shop (and other key components) are actually built over lanes of freeway. That can clearly be seen here.
This is where the plaza meets First Avenue
Flowers. Real flowers.
Footings for the Seventh Street walkway from the A ramp.
These are the footings for the staircase which will connect the plaza to the skyway.
The brick has been tinted where the circulation ramp meets the admin building.
This will be a great neighborhood. Note that the covering is being built for the emergency access. Also, note the streamers above, which appear to be monitoring air flow.
These outfield stands will likely remain visible to passersby.
Now from the inside looking at the same area.
New Year's Eve, 2008
It was in and then quickly out of his glove. You gotta make that play.
This is the staircase (ramp?) leading up to the trapezoid. Nice flagpole too. You'll be able to find me and Ben McEvers at the base of that flagpole on opening day in 2010!
