The Texas Rangers will have a new home in 2020, but they’re not going far. The new Globe Life Field will offer plenty of familiarity to go with the bells and whistles expected of a new ballpark.

Start with the name, which won’t be much different than the Rangers’ old home, Globe Life Park. The location is pretty much the same as well — in the Dallas suburb of Arlington, just across the street from the old park and not far away from the Dallas Cowboys’ home, AT&T Stadium

The big difference, of course, is the retractable roof, much needed for the Dallas Metroplex’s swelteringly humid summers. The Rangers cited weather and the resulting attendance woes as the reason for building a new park despite Globe Life Park’s relatively young age (it opened in 1994), and it received approval for public funding despite strong opposition

Despite the delay in the opening of the 2020 Major League Baseball due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Globe Life Field’s arrival is much anticipated as the centerpiece of a redeveloped sports district that includes the Texas Live! entertainment complex and a repurposed Globe Life Park that will host soccer and football games (it was the home for Dallas’ short-lived XFL franchise).

Watch out for our full guide to Globe Life Field after the facility opens.
