Garfinkel has been providing updates of the newly-begun renovations on his Twitter account, as workers continue to remove all of the old orange seats from the stadium.

The $350 million renovations include a canopy that will shield fans from sun and rain and video boards in all four corners, both of which won't be ready until the 2016 season.

The stadium's renovation will remove about 10,000 seats, bringing the total capacity of the stadium down to about 66,000.
