Future home of the Met Stadium flag pole
At the corner of the Pro Shop.
Note that, even though the scoreboard appears strategically placed, it's the outfield stands which block any potential view of the field from this roof.
The first passengers are about to arrive, but the switch is set for the wrong track (those guys walked all the way out to correct it)
A cross section of the field construction. (Click to enlarge.)
Now, THIS is just some guy who appears to be hanging out on the LRT tracks talking to himself.
Doors directly to the concourse, and a view of the stands beyond
The first pitch.
This is the trapezoid (for lack of a better name) in right center. Be sure to notice section of seats just below the pavilion and above the fence (which I hadn't noticed before). For those who are interested, what looks like an old-style scoreboard is in fact a high-def video board which will look, at times, like an old-fashioned scoreboard.
A view of construction from the B ramp. This looks toward Seventh Street, over what will be Gate 34 (the main entrance).

This is a slightly blurry view of the pavilion in center. It has a quirky shape, but one which is completely consistent with the overall ballpark design. Nice work there. You can also get a glimpse of the greenery which will rise above the fences.
This is the Seventh Street circulation ramp. Note that the floor is covered with plywood to protect it during construction. Not all construction firms are as careful with this type of protection as Mortenson.
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)
Main ticket window area
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.
Some brick work out in the centerfield pavilion.
The Pro Shop.
Here's a closer look.
Snow-blowing the field
Staircase entrance. You cannot miss them.
The view from the corner of Ford Centre. (Feel free to tie up your boats here.)
