Major League Baseball returns to San Antonio as the Texas Rangers battle the Houston Astros on March 28 and 29 in the Alamodome.
Over 75,000 fans packed the Alamodome earlier this year when the Rangers hosted the San Diego Padres for two games. It was the first baseball event in the building's 20-year-history.
Turning the Alamodome into a baseball facility is no easy task. Ryan-Sanders Baseball collaborated with AstroTurf last year to build a 133,000 square-foot custom field for the Alamodome floor. In addition to the turf, 300 cubic yards of dirt was brought in for the base around the infield. Custom dugouts, bullpens, netting and walls were also installed.
Other exciting changes were announced in regards to the field and overall fan experience, involving slight modifications for the second year. Bullpens, which were previously hidden in the two South End tunnels, will now be located down the first- and third-base lines. The entire field will be moved slightly towards center field so that fans on the third-base line have a better view. Additional lighting is also being installed by the Alamodome to brighten the corners of the field.
The games will be played on Friday, March 28th (7:05PM) and Saturday, March 29th (1:05PM). Two-game packages on sale now, with single game tickets available Monday, December 2nd.
