Arkansas Travelers Embrace Changes Following Firings

Along with the standard aging issues, the club is looking at possible fix-ups to the batting cage, restrooms and suites. Allen added that, given the intensity of the Arkansas summers, the team was looking at installing misters on the concourse to help keep fans cool.

“You have your issues,” Allen said. “You have your air-conditioner issues; you have concrete that is cracked.”

Allen wouldn’t forecast whether the team would withhold money for upkeep and upgrades again next spring. When the fiscal period ends Nov. 30, he said, such a decision will be in the hands of the executive committee.

But of all the changes afoot, Allen said, there are no major changes planned for the ballpark. “There is no big wing going out in left field,” he said.

With all that is planned, from uniforms to mascots to All-Stars, Allen said, 2014 will be here before you know it. “It will be here and it’s going to be exciting,” he said. “There will be some visible changes, and we can’t wait to share.”
