    SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- The Texas Rangers are going to defend the Alamo.
    The 20-year-old Alamodome, which has hosted NFL games, the NCAA Final Four and the NBA Finals, will host baseball for the first time when the Rangers and San Diego Padres play two exhibition games March 29-30.

    Rangers President Nolan Ryan says the team is excited.
    San Antonio is home to the Padres' Double-A affiliate, the Missions. To prepare the Alamodome for baseball, AstroTurf will build a 133,000 square-foot custom field.

    The right-field pole will be only 280 feet from home plate, and there will be a 16-foot-high wall in right. It will be 395 feet to straightaway center and 340 feet to the left-field corner, where there will be a 4-foot-high wall. Seating capacity will be 52,295.

    Could the San Diego Padres be moving to San Antonio? Remember after Hurricane Katrina the Saints tempoary moved to San Antonio. And then rumors that Benson the saints owner was threating to move the team to San Antonio. The Pads have the worse attendance in baseball why not move them to San Antonio?
