Astros to get rid of Tal’s Hill

Los Angeles Times - - BASEBALL -

The Astros have an­nounced plans for a pro­posed ren­o­va­tion of cen­ter field at Minute Maid Park that would re­move Tal’s Hill and shorten the dis­tance in cen­ter field from 436 feet to 409 feet. Hous­ton’s cen­ter field is cur­rently the deep­est in the ma­jors, and the $15-mil­lion ren­o­va­tion would make it the sixth-deep­est in the league.

Tal’s Hill, a trib­ute to Cincin­nati’s Crosley Field and other old ball­parks, is named af­ter for­mer team ex­ec­u­tive Tal Smith. The ren­o­va­tions will begin at the end of this sea­son and are to be com­pleted by the start of next sea­son. Gi­ants visit Obama
