Astros break ground on removal of Tal’s Hill

It’s really happening. Tal’s Hill isn’t long for this world. The Astros held a ceremonial ground-breaking of their center field renovation project Monday at Minute Maid Park. Although’s Monday’s ceremony involved a simple pile of dirt, five shovels and some Astros execs decked out in suits instead of construction duds, the day still symbolized the beginning of the end for Tal’s Hill.
