Globe Life Field Tour of Texas Rangers Baseball Stadium

June 27, 2020

Arlington, Texas 

North Texas Section

 

On May 27,  the North Texas Section had a  private group tour of the brand new Globe Life Field, the new home of the Texas Rangers baseball club. Twenty North Texas section members and guests attended the behind the scenes guided tour.

On May 20th, 2016 the Rangers announced that they would vacate Globe Life Park in Arlington and construct a new home with a retractable roof to be named Globe Life Field.  The Rangers had cited weather as the reason attendances at Globe Life Park were lower than in other baseball stadiums in major metropolitan areas, since it was prone to high temperatures and rain delays.  The new stadium with its sliding roof and air conditioning has solved all of those issues. 

Globe Life Field was originally scheduled to open March 23, 2020 but opened instead for high school graduations on May 29, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic delaying the baseball season.  Globe Life Field has a capacity of 40,300 and cost 1.2 billion dollars. A truly impressive place to play baseball.
