Today there was a media tour of the ballpark construction site hosted by the DC Sports and Entertainment Commission and Clark/Hunt/Smoot, and they were nice enough to invite me. I'll have photos and details of what was said later this evening, but in the meantime here's the first JDLand Near Southeast multimedia offering, four minutes of video from within the construction site. It's not earthshatteringly exciting, but it is from down within the bowl of the stadium instead of from the usual vantage points along the perimeter. UPDATE: I've now posted my photos from today's tour, and also a bit of audio with the opening remarks from the DCSEC and construction folks. UPDATE II: And now the stories from news outlets on the tour: here's NBC4's brief. And's (with lots of good details). And the Post's, which sneaks in a bunch of parking garage-related items into the story. UPDATE III: And the WashTimes story, and Marc Fisher's Post column talking about the garages (and how Mayor Baseball has already "checked out").

Included in the packet of materials handed out today at the media tour were three new renderings of the stadium's exterior, much more detailed and crisp than the water colors that were originally released; I've posted them on my main stadium page.
