The first major renovations since the construction of the bleachers and grandstand that became Taylor Stadium in 2000 have finally begun. Last week, workers started on the first of a three-part improvement plan. By the time the Tigers arrive for preseason workouts in January, the team will have indoor hitting cages, a new brick fence bordering foul territory and a new video scoreboard.
Future plans include a clubhouse/locker room and coaches offices along the left-field foul line and additional seating along the right-field line.

■ Kinsler leads Rangers with two homers (Kansas City Star)
If there is indeed a jet stream at the new Yankee Stadium, Ian Kinsler (03) found it.
Kinsler, a former Missouri Tiger, went deep twice as the Rangers became the first visiting team to win a series at Yankee Stadium since mid-June, beating New York 7-2 on Thursday.

Kinsler got Texas’ first hit, a three-run homer in the fourth off A.J. Burnett. He also connected for a solo shot in the eighth off David Robertson, giving him a career-high 28 home runs.
