Baseball exhibitions planned for Alamodome

 

The Texas Rangers are going to defend the Alamo. The 20-year-old Alamodome, which has hosted NFL games, the NCAA Final Four and the NBA Finals, will host baseball for the first time when the Rangers and San Diego Padres play exhibition games March 29 and 30. San Antonio is home to the Padres’ Double-A affiliate, the Missions. To prepare the Alamodome for baseball, AstroTurf will build a 133,000 square-foot custom field. The right-field pole will be only 280 feet from home plate, and there will be a 16-foot-high wall in right. It will be 395 feet to straightaway center and 340 feet to the left-field corner. – Associated Press
