Globe Life Field Reaches Topping Out Ceremony

Globe Life Field 2019

Construction on the future Texas Rangers home reached a milestone Monday, as crews installed the final piece of structural steel as part of a topping out ceremony for Globe Life Field

Set to open next spring for the Rangers, Globe Life Field is currently being constructed just south of the franchise’s former home, Globe Life Park. The project reached a construction milestone on Monday afternoon, when the topping out ceremony took place. Construction workers signed the final steel piece before it was installed on the retractable roof on the west side of the site. A total of 19,000 tons of steel were used to build the roof, according to the team.

On Tuesday, the Rangers took to social media to showcase Globe Life Field’s progress. The team indicated in a tweet that construction is now 85% complete, while showing how the facility is taking shape.

 Work at Globe Life Field’s site is being overseen by Manhattan Construction Company, the Construction Manager of the project.

Globe Life Field’s first major event will be a concert headlined by Chris Stapleton on March 14, with the Rangers getting their first look at the finished ballpark later in this month. The Rangers are scheduled to play an exhibition game there against the St. Louis Cardinals on March 23, before facing the Los Angeles Angels in the regular-season home opener on March 31.
