Ringing in the Bell
This graphic was constructed in February and March, 2000. Initial designs were based on personal tours of the park, when the outfield was a muddy swamp and the seats and scoreboard had not yet been built, and a set of blueprints. The art was completed with the aid of aerial photos taken a couple of weeks before Opening Day. The special Commemorative Section was published on Sunday, April 9, 2000. The home opener was on April 11.
