The knothole (sans view of anything interesting)

This would be easy to miss, but I found it on a cart located directly behind the Batter's Eye seating on the upper concourse in center field.
Signage for the concession stand which is available from the plaza (plaques are up on the fencing)

I think that's a pig up there on that vane!
Hardware in the window! (But why are there three trophies? 1924?)
New Concept Drawing - No Roof
This is the LRT bridge under construction as viewed from the east looking west. The ballpark facade would be at the left in this photo.
This would be a beautiful streetscape if there were ANY people.
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.
Eleven flag poles
Griffith Stadium (notch visible in lower photo at far left)
This is the outside portion of the Metropolitan Club.
His body language might as well be the box score.
Here's the entrance from the seating bowl.
The french fry lights were on!
Stairs down to the sidewalk from the skywalk over Seventh
That is the gun-metal gray wall of The Stadium just beyond the elevated tracks.
Not from Moose's tour, but it's an image you need to see. (Click to enlarge greatly.)
I'm not sure why there's a wreath on Gate 3. (I quickly checked the headlines for any dreaded Killebrew news. Whew.) It looks to be in celebration, maybe of the move.
In the top of the 9th, the sun hit our backs and summer took one last long look.
Life in the shadows
Citi Field as viewed from Shea.
Solution for a hot night, just inside Gate 34 (that's a cool mist, by the way, not hot steam, which would be kind of cruel)
Frost on the pumpkins, snow on the plaza
This is what passes for imagination at Miller Park -- they didn't even get the shape right! (Source: LP)
"Hey, Ma, it says here we go in at gate 34. Must be all the way around on the other side!" Seriously, though, this is a really inspired idea.

A few details worth noticing (Kauffmann Stadium, New Comiskey, Comerica Park, Source: LP)
The plaza as viewed from across the park. The right field overhang section will be built just in from where the plaza supports are.
I have no idea what this is or does, but as gear goes, it's totally boss, man. (Attached to a railing just off of the Trap)
