Not really a time lapse….BUT

In the words the philosopher George Costanza: You know? Spring. Rejuvenation. Rebirth. Everything’s blooming. All that crap.

Apparently not.

Here are a series of photos taken around Time Warner Cable Field at Fox Cities Stadium over the space of an hour after today’s doubleheader with the Kane County Cougars was postponed:

Speaking of concession stands....This one at the end of the first base concourse is getting improvements, too.

Renovation Update: Episode 12.75

I am still without a videographer.  However, JP Cadorin of Sports32 was at the stadium on Wednesday to work on a story for next week’s show.  Check your local listings!

Your musical choices today Yes or David Bowie or Little River Band

Something funny/informative here

Don’t tell anyone, but I found a hole in the canvas and got this shot of the field from what would be the outside seating area of Suite Two.

The concrete floor has been poured on the entire upper level…except for the outside seating.

Renovation Update: Episode 12.5

The good news: I got up on the second level of Time Warner Cable Field at Fox Cities Stadium for this week’s update.

The bad news: This week’s Renovation Update is not a video update.

Our camera operator/director/editor/sound technician/talent relations coordinator/YouTube Video putter-upper left us to take another job with another team right after Christmas.

So, you get….MORE PICTURES from a semi-competent photographer.

If you want, click here to listen to some Yes as you scroll through the photos.   Changes!  As always, click for a larger image.

I couldn't get on the outside seating area, so, I had to stick the camera around the canvas to get this shot of the seating area.

Still some work to do

There has been a lot going on at the ballpark over the last couple of days.  There is a lot that is going to be going on at the ballpark between now and September.

Fan Fest is Tuesday from Noon to 5:30pm.  Get out here and check out the team.

Leadoff Experience is Wednesday night at Liberty Hall.  Come on over and have some fun.

Thursday is Opening Day.  Come to the game, get a bobblehead, and enjoy the game.

Oh, and here are some pictures of an almost snow free Time Warner Cable Field.

From left to right: From the third base concourse, from the usual spot, the new railings and nets in front of the home dugout.  (Click for larger images.)

 

 

Warning! Graphic Winter Photos

I didn’t want to do this.  But, I feel that I have to do this.

Taken from the usual spot:

And, because I wanted to have a radio booth view:

March 23 002.JPG
There are times when I really, really, really, dislike winter. As a reminder, scroll down to the last picture in this post and realize what the field looked like on Monday. That was TWO DAMN DAYS AGO!

Relax. The snow is not that high up on the window.  It is just drifting on the ledge.

Also, I have won staring contests with that bobblehead.  Especially today.

Pictures. We’ve got pictures

Here are three pictures taken around 10:10am today.  As always, click for the larger image.

First, here is a shot that shows the new benches in the home dugout:

Next, the shot from the usual spot.  Compare the picture below with this picture taken during the snowfall the Fox Cities received on March 9 to see how much snow has melted this week:

Last, a picture taken from above the batting eye in center:

20 Days, people!  Think warm thoughts!

A St. Patricks day field photo(s)

Compare this morning’s field photo with the two from yesterday.  I think that it is appropriate the there is so much green showing in the outfield on St. Patrick’s Day!  Erin go brach!  Slainte!

St. Patrick Day 001.JPGWill try to update with an afternoon picture later today.

UPDATE: LOTS OF GREEN after a warm rainy day in Northeastern Wisconsin!  This photo taken around 4:50pm

St. Patrick Day 002.JPG

Keep melting!  Keep melting!

UPDATE: Field Photo(s): March 16, 2011

A few more patches of green compared to Tuesday. Click for a much larger image and you will be able to see the green in right-center is bigger.  Plus, there are streaks of green in left now, too: Patches of Green 001.JPG
The weather forecast is calling for 55 degrees today. Tomorrow the high is supposed to be 60 with rain. We may get the snow off the field in the next few days after all.

I will take another photo around 5pm today to show how much snow a 55 degree day can melt.

UPDATE:  Here is the picture taken around 4:45pm.  Mid-50s temperatures and bright sunshine for about seven hours makes a difference, no?  Left field is now almost completely snow-free.  Center has quite a few more patches of green. Still some work to do in right.

Patches of Green 002.JPG

Let’s see what tomorrow may bring.
