Game time: 7:05 p.m.

No announcement yet on the 2020 schedule and the regular-season Globe Life Field opening.

Globe Life Field is billed by the Rangers as a multipurpose sports and entertainment venue that will include capabilities for hosting high school, college and international sports as well as entertainment tours.

The official groundbreaking for Globe Life Field took place on September 28, 2017 with construction beginning the following week. The new 1.7 million square foot ballpark, which will be located on 13 acres just south of the current Globe Life Park in Arlington, will include a retractable roof for climate control and shelter for fans during the hot summer months. Seating capacity is expected to be approximately 40,300 for Globe Life Field.

The new venue will also complement and enhance the fabric of the surrounding Texas Live!, a mixed-used development created by The Cordish Companies in partnership with the Rangers that opened in August 2018 and features outstanding dining and entertainment options. Loews Hotels & Co. is also constructing the adjacent Live! by Loews – Arlington, TX, hotel and convention center scheduled to open in August 2019.

Once Globe Life Field opens, it will be Major League Baseball’s first new ballpark since the Atlanta Braves debuted SunTrust Park in 2017.
