The worst seats in the houseThe Rangers are spending a few million bucks for upgrades at The Ballpark. One of them makes sense:
The Rangers also announced they are widening the home-plate screen an extra 50 feet so that it will run from one photo well to another next to the dugouts.
But another is simply terrifying:
The Rangers are also installing 91 premium seats in front of home plate . . .
Personally, I'd prefer to sit in foul territory, thank you very much.

Craig, look at a better picture of homeplate on Zvents.
That will give them about 30 feet of foul terroritory behind home. Think that won’t increase the offense. Or maybe that’s the point. Why would any pitcher ever come willing to play there. It’s a great park, but the ERA’s match the zip code.
That’s a terrible picture. I hope the guy didn’t get paid for it.

I lucked into a front row just outside of the screened area in SF. One of the few times I monitored my beer consumption at a game. Seeing Billy Wagner crank it up to 99 from that close was pretty alarming.

I can’t even tell what that is really supposed to mean!

Do they face the pitcher or the batter?
