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
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.
