I think AP is in there somewhere...
The back row of seats in straight-away center. Note that, beyond those seats, you can see the planters (for flowers) on the front of the Left Field Bleachers.(Batters Eye)
Reasonable (if not overly generous) leg room
Up inside the circulation building. (That's the LRT platform visible through the windows.)
A look at Gate 34.
The storage tunnel is barely visible at left behind that guy.
Midway Stadium (seen from our tailgating spot across the parking lot)
The Ron Coomer corner features a bar.
Here you can see the real beauty of the Seventh Street side, and get a solid sense of why the overall design really works. The building's purpose is clearly visible, there are numerous connections from inside to outside, scale is nicely mitigated, the stone is attractively used, materials are pleasantly mixed and truly complementary. It's just a winner in so many ways.
This is the revised version of the center field pavilion (without the restaurant). It looks like there are no seats, just some ledges for people to sit on. It reminds me of the seating on the "bridge" which sticks out of the new Guthrie Theater. Anything which lands in the trees will presumably be a home run, so the "411" sign is apparently just for fun.

No admittance -- yet! Note that you can see the seating bolts which are in place already.
This mural is behind the staircase. The window looks onto the promenade, and the door goes to a kitchen.
Scoreboard in profile against the skyline
I do love the upper concourse. Feels like home already.
Rod Carew will greet you, but he's sorely in need of a home plate for reference. (Killebrew is too.)
Off-topic, but this gigantic, cool, retro sign is just across the street from S&CH. Why? I don't know. Might look nice on top of one of those municipal parking ramps...
Wow! Looking good.
A path for workers -- don't touch the plaza! -- in front of three giant Chia pets

This is a good overview of the spot where the Northstar (bottom) and LRT (top) will intersect.
This view looks up Fifth Street toward downtown and shows how the LRT tracks sort of snuggle up to the ballpark.
Special guests in the trees!
The Ballpark Wall! (really stunning)
Also warming things up are these planters.
They can put a camera just about anywhere. (Photo by Jeff Ewer)
Section 117, Row WC (applies to all the back rows under the Legends Club seating)
A mysterious smile from within a very deep planter!
This looks from the base of the stairs, behind the big pillars, toward the street.
