Globe Life Field est 2020

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Anybody else excited for this new venue?  Ever since getting into college football in 1999, I've only followed the Rangers twice (2010 and 2011 playoffs).   Lately, I've actually followed the rangers more then I have in these last two decades, just because of the new Venue.  That outfield (and its seating sections) has a lot of intriguing angles to it (esp left field and left-center) and the thought of watching a game indoors in AC during July/August gives me a raging hard-on (no homo).  

 

Had tickets to the Rangers vs Cardinals exhibition game on the 23rd so I could be there for the first ever baseball game, but now that is cancelled....

I'm so sick of the "globe life field looks like minute maid" herp derp. If anything it looks like a new version of Safeco Field. I like the idea of air conditioned baseball in the DFW area but man this new park has little charm. Why is the roof red by the way? It looks strange with the dark green metal and lighter green seats. Might as well call it the christmas warehouse

Ranger's new stadiums are jinxes.  In 1972 the first year of Arlington Stadium, the players struck and the season started late.  In 1994 the new Ballpark in Arlington the season ended in August when the players went on strike.  2020, the Rangers are ready to open their new stadium, the players are ready, but the Coronavirus shuts things down.  Batting 3 for 3 on not playing a full season in their new homes.

I like the look of the green seats and fence, it provides a nice contrast to the red,white and blue of the color schemes.  I think it has a bit of charm, mainly in the angles of the outfield, the proximity of the seats to the field, but they could add some detail work to the arches, like adding some Texas flair (like stars or longhorns)  to the brick arches like they did on the facade of the old ballpark.  If they find a way to add alot of Texas-themed detail, this park could have alot of charms, the asymmetry itself gives it a head start in that regard.    I think this will be a better park then Minute Maid.

Adding to the jinx factor was them taking the homeplate from the old ballpark and planting it in Globe Life Field after the last game last season.  They did this in 1993 right after the season (taking the home plate from Arlington Stadium and taking it to the Ballpark In Arlington as part of a ceremony and looked what happened with regards to not having any world series titles in won during the rangers tenure in that ballpark.
