ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Texas Rangers have proposed $10 million in renovations for the Ballpark in Arlington, including an additional row behind home plate and upgraded concessions.

Rangers officials planned to update the Arlington City Council, which owns the venue, later Tuesday. A final vote on a financing arrangement could come Oct. 16.

The AL West-leading Rangers would pay all labor and construction costs for the offseason improvements.

The ballpark, which seats more than 49,000 on five levels, opened in April 1994. Recent upgrades include a new children's area, center field concession stands and improved video boards and TV monitors.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Texas Rangers are excited to come home to Rangers Ballpark in Arlington for Saturday's Game 3, the first home playoff game in 11 years and the first time in its four playoff appearances that the club returns with a 2-0 lead in the American League Division Series.

A victory would give the Rangers their first postseason series win in 38 years in Texas.

The Rangers were 51-30 at home this season, the third-best record in the American League, just two games behind the Minnesota Twins and one game behind the New York Yankees.

"Teams realize it's tough to play in Arlington," Josh Hamilton said. "We take it to a whole new level when we're at home and have the fans behind us."

The Tampa Bay Rays, who will throw right-hander Matt Garza (15-10, 3.91 ERA) against Rangers righty Colby Lewis (12-13, 3.72 ERA), won't go down easy. They were a major-league best 47-34 on the road.
