Last month it was explained to me by ballpark staff that the roof must be open but not all the way. That was the only way they could host high school graduations so it will end up looking like this

It was always going to be cracked open so the Odor could vent.

I took about 90-100 photos that I have on google drive.   Now trying to figure out how to get them from google drive to my desktop so I can upload them to this thread.

Don't worry there will be a new stadium vote in 2040 because the current one will lack [INSERT COMPLAINT HERE]

Hopefully it’s not lacking a WS banner.

I think this pic was about 2 pm CT. Are we gonna have to endure that annoying sun-pattern in LF for day games? Also seems like an outfielder could easily lose a ball in those if it took a certain path. Can't wait for someone to discover a hidden jetstream to right center or whatever oversight gets exposed next

How was that pic 2 pm if he posted it at noon?

No, today was the first day of workouts, hence his comment about baseball being back. 

There are a shit-ton of things to bitch about this park, but a noon pic on July 3 from the press box ain’t one of them. We played exactly ONE home day game in July last year, against Hou at 2 on a Sunday. We’re not gonna play a shitload of day games in future seasons either just because of AC, that’s bad for attendance & TV.

These pics were posted at 2:30 by an MLB Network guy.

Some guy on MLB Network said there was a "wood thing" at one of the entrances with lines to "all the towns in Texas" except Houston at one of the entrances?

I must have missed it.  We started the tour at the left field entrance and I bailed on my tour group to go take photos ...for surly.

Most of our home day games on the full original 2020 schedule were 1:35.

 As promised, here are the photos I took of Globe LIfe Field on my tour.  

Taken from the east side, you can see the juxtaposition of the two stadiums both in theme and in personality.   Here are a few pictures I took of the exterior along with Texas Live   Note that much of the exterior is made of Texas limestone, which in a way contradicted my earlier opinion that this was lacking in a Texas theme.  Maybe symbolically, but combine the limestone and Texas Live it does give off a modern Texas metropolitan or urban feel to it.  But it steel lacks the personality and charm of the old ballpark.

It's a different story on the inside, though still feeling bare (like a new home without home decor)and lacking personality, it has much potential.  When I stepped inside, one of the first things I noticed was the roof.  Any idea what this red material is?

The nice part about the walkways is how they reversed where the concessions so that you can still see the field.   They even have those narrow table tops right behind the seats for people to stand up and enjoy their food and beverage (while watching the game) without having to go back to their seat.

There isn't a bad seat in the house.  The views from all over make you feel like you are much closer and right on top of the field, especially in the outfield.   These pictures don't really do justice to how much closer the views are.  The infield and field itself looks closer in person then it does in the pics. Even from centerfield, you feel like you are right on top of the infield and close to the game itself.   This element is a big upgrade from the old ballpark in my opinion.  The view from centerfield when we started our tour and various views from the outfield and infield upper decks that show how much closer and on top you are to the field itself. These have to be some of the best views in baseball:

I'll also add that the air flow with the air conditioning, especially in the top row feels like the checkout area at Costco; nice, cool and breezy.

Looks like they did a great job inside. I haven't looked up ticket prices but it appears they can carve the place into a bunch of different price points if they want, because the sections are so broken up. I hope it doesn't have the new Yankee Stadium effect of the lower infield sections always being empty due to high prices and no-show rich folk.

Question: what is the area at the top level between home-1st base? Kind of above and to the right of the press box in the pics? I'm not sure I've seen a stadium that keeps that area open, but maybe it's a party deck or something.

It is an area for writers from the media who keep stats, etc.  I think?

Keep in mind that these pics make it look like you are further away (and the field bigger and more spread out) then  you really are.  They don't really do the views justice.  You are so close to and on top of the field and in particular, the infield.  Moreso then any baseball stadium I've been to.

Lmao at Karbach Brewing being so visible. 
 

Ugly ass stadium by the way. Truly hideous inside and out. A much uglier MMP.

I think those guys will be inside with a/c as in the past. Looks like the glass-enclosed area above the word "Home" and down towards 1st base from there, which is how the old ballpark was set up for media. The boxes above "of the Texas Rangers" are TV/radio.

So it still looks like the new place has left blank an area where pretty much every other stadium would have four large sections of the top level infield seating. That's a bunch of revenue. It's quite possible that's a paid party area or something. I'm just intrigued because I can't think of another stadium that has a seating gap in that spot.

Edit: It's between 315-316 on the seating map. Watching the overhead video on the web site, looks like there is some type of seating, possibly a restaurant or maybe it is indeed media seating.

It looks generic as hell. But like a generic stadium from a PlayStation game, not 95% of the stadiums that have been opened since Camden Yards that actually have some personality. If Arlington, TX was a stadium this would be it.

Took a tour today. The wide open walkways are great. Like the field turf. Lots of big money areas. Lot of standing and viewing areas. f03bd1ab57db365fe3d290d9e0813974.jpgd9f57684cf441d1c09eb36f24fdfbcb3.jpg96ac64b4146e3569f0470217c9f450d5.jpgd75b2a8a6399765c21fe1fa022599aa9.jpg

You can tell that the acoustics are set up to make GLF loud as hell.  You can really hear that ball pop and the crack of the bat is even louder.  
That's probably because there's no one there.

True.  Would probably sound more muffled with the sound waves being absorbed by love handles, boobies and fat asses.
