A Killebrew tribute covers part of the wall where the entry doors are located near the escalators.
The splendid view from the roof of the Minikahda building. (Click to enlarge greatly.)
I will take a picture of just about anything.
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.)
Bag checking at Ball Park Lanes was incredibly simple, as was the pick up later. The line was short and fast-moving.
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.
Instrument of evil.
The Carew lounge was all ready for some corporate event.
Viewed from an A ramp elevator lobby.
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!
Tony Oliva, R. T. Rybak and Mike Opat
This would be easy to miss, but I found it on a cart located directly behind the Batter's Eye seating on the upper concourse in center field.
This is the LRT path looking from the ballpark site (behind me) toward downtown. The line currently ends about two blocks up this street. This bridge over I-394 is also being partially rebuilt as part of the ballpark project.
Site plan for the new Nationals ballpark, with the size of the Rapid Park site overlaid
Night games are much preferred by the players at Target Field. You can see why.
Solution for a hot night, just inside Gate 34 (that's a cool mist, by the way, not hot steam, which would be kind of cruel)
This terrible picture shows the netting in place through a knothole on Fifth
Typical standing room crowd which started early and lasted the entire game.
The admin building (note TF logo on banner)
Oh, a flag pole will be so much more...dignified
These stairs will go up to the centerfield pavilion.
Not my actual kids!
At left, across the tracks by that pile of dirt is where the Northstar commuter train platform will be built, and where Twins fans will apparently NOT be able to get a train after night games. (For reference, that's the Fifth Street bridge, with the ballpark site just beyond it. The east corner of Ford Centre is just visible at the right edge of the picture.)
The view from the Penn Ave entrance to 394 (and all the way into town! Click to enlarge)
The Hennepin Grille appears to feature chicken, brats, and fries.
The circulation ramp on the north now has its louver framing.
Supports for the little sections in the outfield.
