Hodgetown is slated for $ 4.5 million dollars worth of improvements.

The Amarillo City Council agreed to the improvements at their Tuesday meeting after they were ordered by Major League Baseball.

Interim City Manager Andrew Freeman said some of the changes include extending safety nets in front of all seats, locker and shower areas for women, and more safety features. 

The contract for the improvements went to Western Builders.

The money is expected to come from bonds to be paid with hotel-motel taxes collected from travelers and the rest of the money will be paid by Sod Poodle owners, Elmore Sports Group.
