The Texas Rangers will move into Globe Life Field, the team's brand new stadium that replaced the old Globe Life Park, a bit later than they originally expected, but reviews on the look and design remain mixed.
If the latest exterior shots of the new ballpark are anything to go by, the Rangers will be playing their home games in a building that looks more like a slaughterhouse than an MLB stadium.
This looks like a place where airplanes get repaired, not a home ballpark for an MLB team. The pristine AT&T Stadium in the background only makes things worse by comparison.
Not only that, but why don't you tell us the difference between these two pictures?
It sure doesn't seem like the people were given what they were shown in the original sketches.
Luckily, the interior looks much fancier, as the retractable roof will finally put an end to all those mid-summer games played in the sweltering 100 degree Texas heat. While some have claimed that it looks like a carbon copy of the Houston Astros' Minute Paid Park, it's certainly a clear upgrade.
While it's better than the cookie-cutter dual use stadiums that dominated the 1970s and 1980s, we're surprised that the designer's first draft made it all the way from the drawing board to being realized for several billion dollars.
