Texas A&M officials vow Kyle Field renovations will be complete by Sept. 6
In San Antonio, Brent Zwerneman reported if Kyle Field's $450M rebuild is not ready for Texas A&M's home opener on Sept. 6, the school has "contingency plans in place" that include NRG Stadium. Texans President Jamey Rootes said, “We've had a number of (past) conversations about NRG Stadium and that we would be open to putting that together, if that's what Texas A&M needs." However, Rootes noted that "no such conversations have taken place of late," as Texas A&M officials have "vowed the project is on target for the Sept. 6 game" (MYSANANTONIO.com, 7/16). 

IN HIDING: In California, Art Marroquin noted a report estimating how much it would cost to "demolish Angel Stadium and build a new ballpark will be kept secret during the team’s stadium lease negotiations" with the city of Anaheim. Mayor Tom Tait had "wanted the city-commissioned analysis to be made public Tuesday, but could not muster any support from his four City Council colleagues." Waronzof Associates was paid $37,380 to "complete the study" (ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, 7/16).

WISH LIST: Pro Football HOF President & Exec Dir David Baker on Tuesday said that the organization's BOT is working with community and business groups in Canton, Ohio, to create a "master plan that addresses Fawcett Stadium's renovation needs as well as incorporates the stadium into plans for a surrounding campus" (CANTONREP.com, 7/15).
