Dedicated closed-captioning ribbon board
This is why I get it, even if I don't like it.
Infield dirt used as accents
Open concourses do mean that you can glimpse the field no matter where you are, but not really the game.
Work on the pavilion in center.

Here is Seventh Street viewed from the west looking toward downtown. This will probably be the most pedestrian-friendly side (other than the plaza), but only if there is some psychological barrier between the people on foot and the people in their dangerously fast-moving automobiles.
These openings will facilitate access to the catwalks which run throughout the canopy.
This is the outside portion of the Metropolitan Club.
A new address for the Admin building
Dugout Box and Champion's Club sections are sequestered by separate moats
B ramp glimpse
Mound from the other side
Name that band. Please. (Mick Sterling)
A walkway begins to form (this is as close as you can get right now)
Finally, a night game image -- complete with fireworks! (OK, it's either a construction photo which has been Photoshopped, or some lucky photographer spent the Fourth of July in the upper deck watching the fireworks over the river. Cool either way.)
This appears to be the floor to the home dugout!
Fencing is going up all along the plaza
Two concepts here remain in the final design. First is the oddly-shaped pavilion in center. Second is the section just above the right field fence. In the current design this section will hang over the field by a few feet. The original doesn't do that, but you can see that the concept goes way back in the planning.
Outside, lots of window space
Here's the view of the entrance ramp to 394. Looks like they are painting...
Ullger warms up.
View from the Overlook
Many people will approace the park from this direction and it's a pretty great first glimpse. It features all the design elements in modestly condensed form, and still manages to look like a ballpark (instead of something else).
I noticed this detail while taking the previous picture. I figure that it must be the VIP entrance from the surface parking lot. I don't think there is any parking inside the ballpark, so this entrance will likely be for suite-dwellers and other VIPs, though I can't say for sure whether players will enter here.
Plaza extension reaches toward First Avenue
The beautiful Promenade has become a sea of temporary barricades. (Smoker's Row outside the unnumbered gate)
This guy at the Puckett atrium chef stand caught me taking the picture and said I should stop back later because he was "just getting started." I still don't know what he meant.
Another view of the escalator, which apparently comes preassembled!
