The sculpture on which millions of kids will one day pose.
The green in question (click for very large version)
The blue line now indicates where the back of the accessible seating ends and standing room begins.
Just to the right, more ticket machines. These things are everywhere.

From the ground beneath the troubled skyway.
This is the start of construction on the Northstar platform which will feed under the bridge and to a lobby with escalators and elevators just inside the ballpark's public concourse. Compared to the ballpark construction, this looks kind of puny. But the work just to get the trains to come has been positively Herculean. Future generations will look back at this with awe.
Looking south (toward Seventh Street).
8:02 PM It's at peak, affecting mostly the upper deck.
The finished product.
Left field bench seating
This is amazingly close to completed. It's a short tunnel entrance ramp to 394 underneath the outfield stands.
Home Plate Terrace -- really great seats; maybe my personal, budget-based favorite
I think that's a pig up there on that vane!
Note that the sign in the background will NOT be changed because "Twins Way" doesn't extend this far north.
Skyline to the left of me, jokers to the right, here I am, stuck in the outfield with you... (click to enlarge)
Nearby, workers are finishing a support column. The guy at the bottom is using some sort of personal dirt mover (inset). Very cool.
Here's a first view of the surprisingly spacious walkway on Fifth between the ballpark and the LRT platform.
At TF, you never know when you may bump into a Pohlad
Hops! (conceptual only)
And another angle looking at the overhang area of the right field pavilion. This looks to me like a great area to watch a game.
Town Ball Tavern balcony
Items promoting the Twins 2014 All-Star Game bid. I got to bring one of these buckets home, and Noah got his first-ever taste of Cracker Jacks.
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.
Typical standing room crowd which started early and lasted the entire game.
Home Plate Box, Section 111, Row 8 or 9-ish (Click to enlarge greatly.)
Here's a closer look at the bullpen area. It's hard to tell for sure, but I think there is still an opening to the concourse right above.
Just some of the lumiaries who turned out for the unveiling (Terry is clearly thinking about Sidney Ponson).
The view from my seats in Section 237 (The Trap), Row 1 (can't see much of center field without standing up...)
This is the upper deck in Anaheim
Just one lane of traffic and a couple of feet between the fence in right-center and the wall of the parking ramp!
Here's an idea of what these Loge Boxes are all about. That guy is a waiter with no fans to serve. They seemed to have one server for about every four boxes.
Stairs down to the sidewalk from the skywalk over Seventh
The gate has grown a row of sponsorship
