HISTORIC MOMENTS IN RANGERS HISTORY TIME-LAPSE CAMERAS FOR GLOBE LIFE FIELD CONSTRUCTION SITE SOON TO BE IN OPERATION Fans can watch construction progress at texasrangers.com/globelifefield RANGERS ADVANCE TO 1ST WORLD SERIES APPEARANCE — OCTOBER 22, 2010 Colby Lewis is a name that pops up again and again when it comes to milestone moments in Rangers playoff history. A stellar performance of 8 innings, 7 strikeouts and just one run in front of the Arlington crowd helped Texas clinch its first World Series appearance, defeating the Yankees 6-1 in the ALCS to advance. Vladimir Guerrero also contributed to the cause, hitting a two-run double. Nelson Cruz also hit a two-run home run. Former Ranger Alex Rodriguez was a Neftali Feliz strikeout victim to end the game and send the Rangers to the World Series against the San Francisco Giants. 10 Texas Rangers fans will be able to watch the construction progress of the team’s new ballpark, Globe Life Field, through the lens of three time-lapse cameras that are expected to be operational by mid-December. The camera feeds can be viewed 24 hours a day at texasrangers.com/globelifefield. The three cameras are manufactured by EarthCam and were installed by Manhattan Construction, the General Contractor of Globe Life Field. They provide views looking north (camera installation on back of right field video board of Globe Life Park in Arlington), east (camera installation on east façade of AT&T Stadium), and west (camera installation on utility pole on Stadium Drive) on the 13 acre Globe Life Field construction site. Founded in 1996, EarthCam is a global company providing webcam content, technology, and services Groundbreaking on the 1.1 billion dollar ballpark took place in late September. General site excavation, installation of the soil retention system, pier drilling, and running of underground utilities are the principle construction activities currently in progress.
