MADRID -- Real Madrid will be adding a retractable roof to the Santiago Bernabeu after finally reaching an agreement with the city to remodel the stadium. http://www.cowboysrookieproshop.com/Cowboys-Damien-Wilson-Jersey/ .Madrid president Florentino Perez said Tuesday the project will cost 400 million euros ($447 million) and construction is expected to start next year.The revamped venue, which will also carry a new facade, is expected to be fully completed by 2020.We will see a dramatic transformation of the Santiago Bernabeu, Perez said. This stadium is one of the emblematic icons of our city and we want to make it one of the best stadiums in the world and the undisputed symbol of the strength of our capital.Madrid had tried to remodel its famed venue for several times but earlier projects were turned down by the city and court decisions.The new deal was announced at an event with Madrid Mayor Manuela Carmena.With this agreement we will start a process of modernization and transformation that will convert the stadium into an avant-garde architectural icon, Perez said. This stadium will act as an economic and touristic invigorator and will contribute to strengthening the image of our city.The venue originally inaugurated in 1947 will maintain its capacity of more than 80,000, although the seating sections may be redesigned. One of the stadiums most notable features, the four corner access towers, will be covered by the new facade.Perez said the Santiago Bernabeu will maintain its name, but it may gain a surname from a sponsor like at stadiums everywhere in the world.Abu Dhabi investment fund International Petroleum Investment Company is helping finance the renovation.Because of the agreement with the city, Madrid wont be allowed to increase the total size of the structures already in place, so it will have to rearrange the current constructions to be able to remodel the venue. Some office spaces will be transferred to the teams base in Ciudad Real Madrid, in the citys outskirts.The clubs initial plan was to build a hotel and a shopping center along with the remodeled stadium, something that had prompted fierce opposition across the city. The club will still be able to use the new space commercially, but not how it originally planned.Officials praised the fact that one of the stadiums parking lots will be transformed into a large public area, and that the new roof will help reduce noise in the neighborhood.This deal happened to promote the modernization project of the stadium and to improve and urban environment around our beloved Bernabeu, Carmena said.The Bernabeu stands in the middle of the high-end neighborhood of Chamartin.In March, rival Barcelona announced its own remodeling project for the Camp Nou, increasing capacity from 99,354 to 105,000 after construction is fully finished in about five years. The stadium will also have a new roof covering all seating sections.---Tales Azzoni on Twitter: http://twitter.com/tazzoni.

PETERSBURG, Fla. http://www.cowboysrookieproshop.com/Cowboys-Chaz-Green-Jersey/ .C. -- Kemba Walker and the Charlotte Bobcats got off to a fast start, and the Sacramento Kings were never quite able to catch up. http://www.cowboysrookieproshop.com/Hats/ . -- Josh Sterk scored once and set up two more as the Oshawa Generals edged the visiting Belleville Bulls 3-2 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. BOSTON -- Alex Rodriguez got the raucous booing he expected and the victory his team needed.Rodriguez drove in a run with a bases-loaded dribbler, capping a three-run rally in the eighth inning that lifted the New York Yankees over the Red Sox 4-2 on Thursday night and sent New Yorks polarizing designated hitter out of Boston with one last victory.It was a lot of fun to be out there, Rodriguez said after his only start in the series. Kind of a funny hit at the end. Not how I pictured it when I woke up this morning, but definitely Im glad that run came in and we won the game.Rodriguez is set to play his final game for New York on Friday night at Yankee Stadium against Tampa Bay. The slumping 41-year-old will then be released and become an adviser and instructor for the team.Rodriguez was 0 for 4 and loudly jeered throughout the game, which turned in the Yankees favor on a crucial fielding mistake that allowed them to overcome a 2-1 deficit and take two out of three in the series.Rodriguez lined out, popped out and struck out before his tapper in front of the plate in the eighth rolled maybe 10 feet -- far enough for Brett Gardner to score from third and put New York up 4-2.Thats how Im going to remember it -- the RBI, Rodriguez said. Im not going to tell anyone how it came.Rodriguez has started twice in 18 games since July 22 and is in a 4-for-41 slide. He sat Tuesday in the opener and flied out as a pinch hitter in the Yankees 9-4 win Wednesday -- his first at-bat in more than a week. Manager Joe Girardi fulfilled an earlier promise to put him in the lineup Thursday and said he wasnt going to pinch-hit for Rodriguez in the eighth.I really thought he might hit a ball in the seats tonight, Girardi said. But it ends up being a big run. It really does.The RBI for Rodriguez came after the Red Sox intentionally walked Chase Headley with one out. And it punctuated the frustration for Boston fans who had just seen former Red Sox star Jacoby Ellsbury, booed almost as loudly as Rodriguez, hit a fly ball to left field that rookie Andrew Benintendi misread with the bases loaded.It went in the lights, but thats no excuse. I should have caught it, Benintendi said. Its just one of those things. Not much you can do about it. I tried to put my glove up where I thought it was going to be.The ball went past Benintendi, allowing two runs to score on what was originally ruled a sacrifice fly and error. After the game, it was changed to a two-run double.The Yankees other run came on Austin Romines solo homer to left in the third.Dellin Betances earned his third save, striking out Dustin Pedroia and Xander Bogaerts with runners at the corners to end it.Luis Cessa (2-0) pitched two scoreless innings. Braad Ziegler (0-3) got the loss. http://www.cowboysrookieproshop.com/Cowboys-Bob-Lilly-Jersey/. Boston starter Eduardo Rodriguez gave up one run and three hits in seven innings.Hanley Ramirez drove in both runs for Boston with a single in the first and an RBI double in the fifth off Michael Pineda.Ramirez later was knocked down in a collision by Gary Sanchez while trying to field a bounced throw at first base. Ramirez was checked by a trainer and stayed in the game.FENWAY FAREWELLRodriguez was pleased to have the RBI to remember rather than going 0 for 4 in his final game of the AL East rivalry. He said it was a good way to say farewell to Fenway Park, where in 1994 Rodriguez was a teenager with Seattle when he got an infield single at Fenway Park for his first major league hit.Rodriguez said the Boston fans treated him exactly as he expected them to.Theyre passionate fans. They love their team, he said.BAT BOYRodriguez handed over a bat to a young boy he said he made a deal with in the first inning. The kid would get the bat if Rodriguez homered, got two hits or the Yankees won. It turned out to be Door No. 3.That was the deal, Rodriguez said. Every at-bat he just kept sending me encouraging messages and then he got the bat.RIGHT PLACEZiegler credited the Yankees for the rally in the eighth.I felt like I made a couple pretty good pitches. The one Ellsbury hit wasnt even a strike, Ziegler said. Made a good pitch to A-Rod and got just a little tapper in front of the plate. Thats a pitch a lot of times guys swing and miss or if they do hit it they hit it a little harder than that. He just hit in a spot where we couldnt do anything about the guy at third.TRAINERS ROOMYankees: RHP Nathan Eovaldi had an MRI on his pitching elbow and was evaluated by team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad. The Yankees did not disclose the results but did say Eovaldi will seek a second opinion. Until we have that second opinion, were not going to release anything, Girardi said.Red Sox: OF Mookie Betts was out of the starting lineup after leaving Wednesday nights game early with tightness in his right calf. Manager John Farrell said Betts calf was still sore and he needed a night off.UP NEXTYankees: LHP C.C. Sabathia (6-9, 4.18 ERA) starts as the Yankees return to New York for a weekend series against Tampa Bay. RHP Chris Archer (6-15, 4.26) is scheduled to start for the Rays.Red Sox: LHP David Price (9-8, 4.34) tries again to snap out of a slump when Boston opens a three-game series at home against Arizona. Price has lost his last two decisions and hasnt won since July 10. LHP Patrick Corbin (4-11, 5.37) starts for the Diamondbacks.
