The Best Fans Deserve the Best Experience by Madison Pelletier, Texas Rangers Magazine I n the year that has passed since the Rangers broke ground on Globe Life Field, the site has been transformed from parking lot to home for the team and fans alike. Globe Life Field will provide a unique sporting venue experience, offering many special opportunities that will be new to Texas Rangers' fans. To provide an unparalleled intimate experience for fans in every section. “I think the fans will probably appreciate the intimacy we will have with the new Globe Life Field,” Rangers Senior Vice President of Project Development Jack Hill said. “When you start comparing the sightlines between Globe Life Field and 6 Globe Life Park, there are clearly some intimate sightlines.” The first row of seats on the lower level is approximately seven feet closer than the same seating accommodation at Globe Life Park. The intimacy isn’t limited to the lower bowl, which sits at 43 feet from backstop to home plate, compared to 50 feet at Globe Life Park. The proximity to the field continues throughout the bowl. The first row of seating behind home plate on the upper concourse is estimated at 30 feet closer to the field than its predecessor.
