Bleacher Reconstruction Update - February 12

I happened to be driving by the ballpark Saturday afternoon about 3:15.

No, really. I was on my way to pick up Mark at a friend's house, and the ballpark just happened to be in between my house and the friend's.

Who do I see standing on the east side of Sheffield, in the snow, with his camera? Why, it was David, intrepid photographer. There was too much traffic to stop and say hi, but he sent me these twelve photos from a snowy Saturday afternoon.

The timeline has also been updated.
