Banister decided to pack his bags, head to Clear Lake, near Houston, and join his family. Saying it was time to create a new generation of ballparks, Texas Rangers team officials and architects Thursday unveiled a series of renderings depicting an intimate -- yet somehow still giant -- setting to watch a Major League Baseball game.
