Just so you have a reference, this is an LD ("low def") scoreboard (inset is what the controller probably looks like).
Mussina's first pitch. (Playing 3rd: Not A-Rod)
One more time from the third base side.
Reverse view, now looking down Sixth toward the park. The Met Stadium flag pole will be right there!
More of a bird's-eye view of the same area.
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.

Looking out from under Gate 34
I love views like this. They show just how much Target Field shimmers. (Photo by Jeff Ewer)
These tracks actually travel beneath the admin building and come out on the other side
Do you think somebody's already cooking hot dogs out there?
Inside the Metropolitan Club. Classic photo of a youthful Bob Casey at far right. (Photo by Tyler Wycoff)
This is the back of the Cisco Field scoreboard, showing video to folks out on the plaza.

Let's be honest and say that this promenade, which will face the HERC plant, won't be the most exciting part of the streetscape. It has to be provided for circulation reasons, but there won't be much to see unless vendors and other attractions take root here.
The process of building the canopy is really amazing to watch.
A new address for the Admin building
It's pretty easy to see right into the Twins dugout!

There are some great banners on fencing down Target Way. I'm not sure just who sees them.

Notice that the wooden-backed club seats are now covered by a green tarp for protection from the elements.
Life in the shadows
I think that's a pig up there on that vane!
That is the gun-metal gray wall of The Stadium just beyond the elevated tracks.
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.
I took this picture from the Overlook at great personal risk, because everything Thome was hitting was landing out that direction.
World Series trophies on display at left
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.)
Left field bench seating

This looks like a Twins Pub, but is actually the scoreboard operations.
This area will supposedly show the Twins chronology. Will it stretch back to 1901?
. This bridge is also being partially rebuilt (see next photo).
