After 30 home games, Chris Woodward talks how the Rangers can utilize Globe Life Field in their favor

Texas Rangers manager Chris Woodward joined the K&C Masterpiece on 105.3 The FAN [KRLD-FM] recently for his final chat of 2020. Here are some highlights, edited for clarity:

Having now played 30 games at Globe Life Field, how important is it for the club to develop great outfield defense? In what areas can the Rangers better use their new confines?

Chris Woodward: “Yeah, it’s really important. And we obviously emphasized that by making the moves we did. Bringing up Leody Taveras and Eli White. Nick Solak did a fine job when he was in the outfield, but when you’ve got Taveras, White and Joey Gallo in the outfield, as big as that place is … I think towards the end of the year it started playing a little smaller than it did in the beginning, but it’s a big outfield. Lot of ground to cover, and when you have those

Repair start on damage to East Haven High School’s Crisafi Field

EAST HAVEN — Work has begun to rebuild East Haven High School’s Frank “Coach” Crisafi Field, which was destroyed by wind micro-bursts in the Aug. 27 severe thunderstorm — and the Board of Education this week gave the go-ahead to do repair work on home bleachers, which also were damaged.

The synthetic turf field — used by both the Yellowjackets football and soccer teams — should be completed by Nov. 2, Athletic Director Anthony Verderame told the Board of Education this week.

“The field is scheduled to be completed on Nov. 2 and we will have our last games for soccer that week,” Verderame told the board. “If we do not get the $10,000 to fix the home stands, we will not be able to use the facility for fans.

“It will just be the athletes competing,” he said.

“As of now they are scheduled to complete the leveling of

Finish in sight for new Badgers pool construction, Field House exterior renovation | College sports

When overseas entry to the U.S. is possible, the pool will be drained and the moveable floor installed.

The Badgers swimming and diving teams have competed at the Natatorium but had their training facilities at the now-demolished SERF. The Soderholm Family Aquatic Center also has a diving well, a video board and seating for around 1,000, King said.

UW Athletics paid $13.5 million toward the $96 million Nicholas Recreation Center for UW students and staff, which features 30,400 square feet of fitness space, eight full-size basketball courts and five multipurpose studios. It was slated to open last January but experienced weather and construction delays.

Will Soldier Field renovation deal deliver late hit to city budget?

In 2011, then-Mayor Rahm Emanuel argued that Chicago taxpayers are “not an ATM machine” and can’t afford to be the financial backstop for the $660 million renovation of Soldier Field.

The bonds that financed the Soldier Field project are paid off with part of the city’s hotel tax — but that financing package also assumed hotel tax revenue would grow by a rosy 5.5% a year. When it doesn’t, Chicago taxpayers make up the difference.

Emanuel was bracing for a $1.1 million hit that year, though in the end, the city lost just $185,000 of its state income tax revenue. Emanuel dumped three stadium authority board members and ordered their replacements to change the financing structure. But those changes were never made. The city remains on the hook.

Now, it may be time to turn on the ATM machine once again.

The stadium deal, announced in 2001, included a 2-percentage-point
