Look familiar? Unfortunately, just adding little balconies with cool angles will not offset the pervading ugliness.
Final pieces arrive
Yes, son, Memorial Stadium used to be right there, just beyond those gates.
Mussina's first pitch. (Playing 3rd: Not A-Rod)
At the end of the balcony you can see down the promenade.
LRT throngs after the game
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)
Saturday afternoon, KMSP-HD 720P
The Pantheon (with inset of the magic eye)
The entrance at Gate 3.
Look closely and you'll see limestone on the front of the press box!
Not sure what those supports are for -- probably stadia.
Sharing and Caring Hands, as viewed from the ballpark site about a block away. Note transaction in progress in the shadows.
Work beneath the scoreboard
A place to sit (does it look like a pitcher's mound to you?)
Hey! An unnumbered gate!
Today's match-up (click to enlarge)

Two train stations
Dedicated closed-captioning ribbon board
Looking from near the entry doors toward the center, the atrium is just visible at the far right.
No arches. No brick. No girders. Classic.
Still some work to be done on the canopy.

Here's a quick look into the layout of the Metropolitan Club.

One of the many supports being built over the tracks.
