8:22 PM The sun has caused glare in the webcam, but you can still see the reflection affecting the upper deck behind home plate.
Dugout Box and Champion's Club sections are sequestered by separate moats
4th inning in the thinning crowd of the Grandstand.
The dessert carts came out earlier, and looked even better than last year.
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.
You can't get there from here.
Note that the sign in the background will NOT be changed because "Twins Way" doesn't extend this far north.
Pawlenty makes it official!
CBP: retro in facade only
There are no caddies in baseball.

Looking up toward Seventh Street.
The Fifth Street side is pretty busy. There's a small street entrance to the B ramp, then ticket booths and an entrance gate, a rare exterior section not covered in limestone, the wooden screen covering the circulation ramps, the administration building, and finally (just out of view) the interface with Northstar. All of that sits behind the LRT action. How pedestrians will interact with this side of the park is a great mystery to me. You know that Metro Transit won't be letting them cross the tracks anywhere but at either end of the block...
The images on that wall appear to be of great Twins moments in history.

Seville's certainly will benefit from 81 games a year played about a block away! (When I walked by on this day, the place looked deserted, but I stand corrected!)
Wrigley Field. Paradise? Not from these seats.
