Looking through it, you can see the outfield pavilion (upper deck at least).
This is a closer look at the steel work.

7:52 PM It's nearing peak, and covering the stands behind third base.

The media had some beautiful foliage to use as a background.
Steel meets concrete, with the last rays of sun visible through the suite and concourse openings at left.
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 looks south and shows the track configuration for Northstar. The platform shown is just a placeholder. To the best of my knowledge, concept drawings for this platform have not been released. Keep in mind, this is NOT part of the ballpark project. It is completely separate.
Love the red flowers -- just like the original concept drawings. That NEVER happens.
Stay warm while buying tickets.

I took this picture from the Overlook at great personal risk, because everything Thome was hitting was landing out that direction.
Poles through the gap
The reverse angle shows that the signage will only partially obscure views from the top of the ramp. The wall is pretty high up there, so you'll need something to stand on, but it appears that this is one of the so-called "knotholes".
In the top of the 9th, the sun hit our backs and summer took one last long look.
TC gets ready to release the hounds. (Kids get to run the bases after Sunday games.)
I could gaze at this streetscape all day. It isn't perfect, but as a model for Minneapolis, I love it. (Except the Biff, of course. Click to enlarge.)
