Play Ball! Today is opening day for the MLB. Over 40 thousand fans are in attendance for the Texas Rangers first game of the season. Today is bittersweet since this will be the last opening day at Globe Life Park.
Globe Life Park opened in 1994 and has been an Arlington staple for decades. Beginning next season, the Rangers will be playing at Globe Life Field just down the street. Unlike the stadium, the new field will have air conditioning and synthetic turf.
