Astros to open new Dominican Academy today

Hey - the Dominican Academy opens today!

The newly designed complex consists of two-and-a-half baseball fields, six pitcher’s mounds, batting cages, locker rooms, an industrial kitchen, weight room, staff living quarters and an observation tower — the better to observe the lack of talent in the development stage from.

Dominican President Leonel Fernandez Reyna will also be there, as well as several other high-ranking government officials.

After the dedication, the Astros’ Dominican team will christen the field against the Philadelphia Phillies’ Dominican academy team.

Anyone else, after reading the description, think it sounds kind of like, uh, prison?
