Home of the Texas Rangers, Globe Life Park in Arlington

Sharing is caring!

As a tribute to the World Champions Texas Rangers, I thought I would share a visit to their old stadium.  It’s still the only Major League Baseball Stadium I have toured but should tour more as I really enjoyed it.  This was a great tour of the Home of the Texas Rangers, Globe Life Park in Arlington.  

Maybe on our next trip to the Dallas area, we can tour the new Globe Life Field.

The end of MLB brings on my favorite season – NCAA Men’s Basketball. 




Built in 1994, the red brick made me think of the old Engel Stadium here in Chattanooga, home of our Lookouts for many years. A little bit more history of Engel Stadium, much of the movie “42” was filmed there. I think having that nostalgic feel goes hand in hand with baseball. We saw Michael Jordan play there when he was a member of the Birmingham Barons.
All these stadiums offer all types of gourmet foods, but to me, a baseball game means a hot dog and beer. Anyone else with me?
Maybe on a visit sit in Hall of Fame Joe DiMaggio’s Suite.

Have a seat in a former owner and President George W. Bush. Normally when any of the Bush family attends a game, they prefer to sit down behind home base.

It didn’t feel much like baseball season as it was about 45 with a cold, blowing wind. We aren’t huge baseball fans, but do love to support our hometown team, The Chattanooga Lookouts.  I enjoy touring places like this and learning a bit of history of the team and building.

Our tour guide, Keith, was wonderful and so knowledgeable.  Plus he knew a lot about the Lookouts (my son happened to be wearing a Lookouts cap) that day.

This was an unplanned idea as we were driving out to AT&T Stadium to get a look at it before going to the Cowboys game the next day. When we noticed the gift shop was open, we decided to check it out. After we saw tours were available, it was a great chance to get a little more Texas experience while in the area. The tours were very affordable for a spur of the moment idea, so a very budget friendly way to spend a couple hours.  Tours are offered every day but check HERE for more details.

Before the tour if you had asked me about The Texas Rangers, I knew very little. I do remember they lost a couple of World Series back-to-back several years ago, Nolan Ryan was a Hall of Fame pitcher, and George W. Bush used to be a part owner.

As with most tours, you get to go where the public never has access to.  Do you want to attend a press conference?

Try your hand at batting practice?

What about a workout?

While going in the dugout, you have to wonder about the players who have sat here and the stories told.  Wouldn’t you like to be a fly on the wall during a game?

Something cute we noticed – the “foul ball line” was sponsored by Chick-Fil-A but renamed “Eat More Fowl” line.

We also got a great view of AT&T Stadium. We were disappointed we didn’t get to tour it as State High School Football Games were going on at the time.

The Rangers do a lot for the community including passing on most of their used equipment to youth groups and clubs. They also host many camps and clinics during the summer.

Before I left the gift shop, I had to leave a reference to Chattanooga.

By now, so much has changed around the around with the opening of Texas Live, a mixed-use district, with lots of activities planned, including concerts.  I think a trip to the Arlington area should be on our next Texas road trip.

The new $150 million flagship Live! by Loews hotel at Texas Live! is the first of its kind in the country, providing guests an unprecedented upscale experience that blends sports and entertainment with first-class hospitality and superior amenities.

The result of two powerhouse brands of Loews Hotels & Co. and The Cordish Companies’ Live! brand, Live! by Loews will anchor Texas Live! in the heart of the Arlington Entertainment District between the Texas Rangers’ Globe Life Park and the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium

From what I have seen on TV during the World Series, Globe Life Park is spectacular. 

Are you a baseball fan or have you toured any MLB Stadiums? 

When in Arlington, also consider attending a Cowboys Game at AT&T Stadium.  It’s not just a game, it’s an experience.

You never know who you might grab a photo with.
