The Texas Rangers will soon make their long-awaited move out of Globe Life Park in Arlington and into their new home, the multi-year, air-conditioned project known as Globe Life Field.
According to Sports Illustrated, Globe Life Field is approximately 98% finished. The only thing left for stadium designers to complete is the grass playing surface and organic infill.
The Rangers' official Twitter account released one of the final reveal photos of Globe Life Field, and it left us thinking if the stadium is an exact clone of the Houston Astros' famous Minute Maid Park.
Folks, the only thing missing that would make Globe Life Field a replica is the short porch in left field. From center field to right, it genuinely looks like a carbon copy of Minute Maid Park. From the second deck in RF, to the extended bleachers in right-center beyond the bullpen, and green padding in center field, it's simply impossible to deny.
And who could forget the colossal scoreboard in right field?
Honestly, I wonder if they built Tal's Hill in center just so they could pave over it.
At least we don't see a train ready to sound off on home runs on the stadium's outskirts, right?
