Construction at Rangers Ballpark moving at a good clip (with video)

The renovations in the center-field area at Rangers Ballpark are on course to be completed by March 20, and 42-inch safety railing will be in place completely around the front rows of all levels.

The heavy equipment has been removed from the Ballpark, and now workers are pounding away at a good clip. The key has been nice weather, which has kept the project on track.

The indoor two-level restaurant and children's area are also progressing nicely. The a new visitors bullpen has been dug out, and likely would meet the approval of Tony LaRussa. Center field, which will include a restaurant big enough to host functions, has multiple buildings that have sprung up recently.

The railing will be uniform in height and differs from the existing railing in that it is multiple rows of strong wire rather than metal tubing. The Rangers believe the line of sight will improve rather than be adversely affected.

Local media, donning hard hats and goggles and safety jackets, were given a tour this morning. At one point, Ian Kinsler and Craig Gentry took the field and threw. Gentry later said that he is healthy after suffering a minor leg injury during a winter-ball stint in the Dominican Republic.

Lets hope they put a movie rating on the tickets to warn parents about the unappropriated video played before every game. Violence is NOT appropriate for children.

Kids today may find the video on Jerryworld's jumbotron more offensive than the Rangers reliving the Nolan Ryan headlock.
