Work on one of the side panels
One thing that the design disguises nicely is that the Pro Shop (and other key components) are actually built over lanes of freeway. That can clearly be seen here.
Yep, that's real grass down there, son.

Looking across the top of the batter's eye
We took refuge for a time in the Twins Pub where you can drink a beer (or just hang out) and listen to some ballpark tunes. The organ is decorated with a TC (of course) and what looked like drawings which Sue has received from kids.

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.

Anything which lands in the trees will presumably be a home run, so the "411" sign is apparently just for fun.

B ramp at left, ballpark at right (and visible far away through the tiny crack)
Here's a closer look at the bullpen area. It's hard to tell for sure, but I think there is still an opening to the concourse right above.
