Harmon is visible (barely) at the very center of the crowd.
These stairs will go up to the centerfield pavilion.
Double plays will be turned here.
Look closely at the overhang. You'll see the on the right it is flush with the fence, and then it sticks out farther and farther as you move toward center. More fun for Michael Cuddyer.
Condiments! (complete with faux limestone on the cart -- nice touch)
The alumni band sounded great.
A few weeks ago there were sand volleyball courts here. When the park opens, this will be surface parking. Maybe one day there will be something more interesting built on top of that parking...
Legends Club fireplace (there are two)
Crosswalk taking shape.
Final pieces arrive
Opening day, 2010
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!

This is as close as I could get to a pedestrian-eye view of the main entrance. This is what you'll see as you enter by coming down Sixth Street.
A glimpse of the rather plain west facade (the side which faces the HERC plant).
A look at Gate 34.
A closer look at the louvers
The equivalent spot on the model.
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.
Dome, what have you taken from us?
Once again, Noah is holding his ears because of the traffic noise.
I finally found the corner of TF dedicated to the Senators. What a wonderful sight.
Storage tracks in the foreground.
The sign reads, "Mortenson Radio Channels".

Door to the visitor's clubhouse.
This looks south and shows how the Northstar tracks are sheltered by the promenade above. This is the side which faces the HERC plant.
