If you want, you can ask those folks how the game is going -- and even get a little bit of info from the big screen (Grandstand)
I realized I've never shown how the walkway over Seventh Street meets the A ramp
Looking south (toward Seventh Street).
Flowers. Real flowers.
I was surprised at how close those upper deck seats seem. From the plaza, you feel like you can reach out and touch them. It really adds to the impression of overall compactness.
A truck is leaving the HERC plant. Here you can see the proximity to the promenade. For the record, the truck drove right by me and I smelled nothing...
Seat logos in place
A skyway-level view down Seventh Street.
Spring of 1982 (click to enlarge greatly -- can you pick out Kent Hrbek?)
The finished product.
A sign that your mall is all but dead: roped off escalators. (This is at about 4:00 PM on a weekday.)

Sometime in the late 1980s: B ramp is under construction. Not yet built: Target Center, I-394 and the A ramp.
From the best seat in the house (Section 8, Row A), the right field corner is blocked. (No one may care. Fine with me. People should know.)
Just so you have a reference, this is an LD ("low def") scoreboard (inset is what the controller probably looks like).

Yes, son, Memorial Stadium used to be right there, just beyond those gates.
At the corner of the Pro Shop.
These two sections are within a few feet of one another.

Many people will approace the park from this direction and it's a pretty great first glimpse. It features all the design elements in modestly condensed form, and still manages to look like a ballpark (instead of something else).
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).
Someone please get those poor people a drink of water. (Gate 34, after the game had started)
From last week, you can see the piers taking shape. I believe that the front row, visible here as just forms and reinforcing rods, is the front edge of the plaza.
Where you are, and where you can go.
Here's the view from the main concourse out through Gate 3 "Killebrew".
Also warming things up are these planters.
Working on the main concourse right about directly behind the plate.
