The Texas Rangers new $1.2 billion stadium Globe Life Field, home of the worst, most vile ballpark food in Major League Baseball, was originally scheduled to open in March. However, thanks to the ongoing global pandemic and MLB finally getting its act together, announcing a July 23 or 24 start date to the 2020 season, fans are finally starting to pay attention again. (Aren’t they, Houston?)

The new Globe Life Field, which cost taxpayers around $500 million and has so far only played host to some high school graduations, will be replacing the team’s “old” stadium, Rangers Park at Arlington, built wayyyy back in 1994.

Texas is also the only state with teams in Major League Baseball that will be allowing fans to attend games, thus giving the Rangers and Astros a distinct home-field advantage once the season begins.

Globe Life Field’s capacity is listed at 40,300, which means, according to Texas governor Greg Abbott, they can host around 20,150 people per game who may or may not be wearing masks despite the number of new cases going through the roof in the state. (But is it a retractable roof?)

On Tuesday, the stadium and the team shared video showing off the Rangers’ new digs.

Unfortunately for them, reactions to the new ballpark were probably not as positive as they and the team had hoped.

On the plus side, at least this stadium will have air conditioning. (Yes, the Rangers built a ballpark, in 1994, in Texas, with no air conditioning. Major League Baseball, folks!)
