Root for the Texas Rangers from the spring to fall season
Dallas is lucky enough to have six local professional sports teams, including the Texas Rangers – a franchise that has a long list of Hall of Famer's and All-Time leaders in strikeouts and home runs.
Previously the Washington Senators in the 1960s, the franchise moved to Arlington, Texas and became the Texas Rangers, playing their first game under their new name on April 15, 1972. As a member of the American League, they have played in seven Division Series and two World Series. Nolan Ryan, Alex Rodriguez and Josh Hamilton are just a few Rangers’ greats who have made the All-Time leaders lists and had a significant impact in the franchise’s history books.
The Rangers play in Arlington, just 20 minutes from Downtown Dallas. The city is home to two of Dallas’ major sports teams – the Texas Rangers and the Dallas Cowboys – and both stadiums are within walking distance of each other, so you can take advantage of stadium tours if you’re visiting for the weekend. Also, nearby are multiple attractions like Six Flags Over Texas and Hurricane Harbor, as well as plenty of shopping and dining options.
Globe Life Park, a traditional open-air stadium, opened in 1994 and seats over 48,000 fans. Take a tour of the stadium before the game to get a behind-the-scenes look at the media room, dugout, luxury suites and tons of Rangers memorabilia. The stadium is celebrating its final season at Globe Life Park before moving to its new home in 2020. The new stadium, Globe Life Field, will be adjacent to the current stadium and will be revamped into a retractable roof stadium and will seat 40,000 fans.
The newly opened Texas Live! is a mecca for all your dining and entertainment needs. Filled with 10 restaurants and bars including Troy’s, a concept from Dallas Cowboys Hall of Famer Troy Aikman’s, and Pudge’s Pizza, a pizza spot from Texas Rangers Hall of Famer, Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez. There are also plenty of big screen TVs to catch the game and an outdoor music stage with life-size patio games.
