January 23rd, 2020

ARLINGTON -- The Globe Life Field sign has been completely installed, marking another significant moment for the Rangers' new ballpark.

The prominent sign is attached to the north façade of Globe Life Field, overlooking the North Plaza adjacent to Texas Live! The unveiling of the 108-foot sign took place on Thursday morning.

Globe Life Field is scheduled to be ready at the beginning of March, in time for Texas' March 23 exhibition game against the Cardinals. The Rangers' home opener is scheduled for March 31 against the Angels.

Rangers fans can get a good look at the new ballpark on Saturday. The club will host the 2020 Texas Rangers Comerica Peek at the Park at Texas Live! from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. CT.

The event, open to the public at no charge, will allow fans to get a behind-the-scenes look at Globe Life Field. A viewing area will be set up on the outfield main concourse of the new park, providing a great sightline of the playing field, seating bowl and retractable roof areas. The viewing area will be accessible from Texas Rangers Plaza, adjacent to Texas Live!
