Mizzou Baseball Quotes & Notes

Taylor Stadium gets makeover (Columbia Tribune)
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.

Matt Nestor's article has all the details on the current future phase - including the new scoreboard - HERE

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.
