    Globe Life Park in Arlington last edited by Marino on 01/22/20 07:03AM View full history

    Rangers Ballpark in Arlington has been home to the Texas Rangers of the American League since 1994. Prior to it's opening the Rangers played their home games at nearby Arlington Stadium. It is built as a "retro" stadium, taking features from other older and more well-known ballparks such as the out-of-town scoreboard on the left field wall patterned after the one at Fenway Park and the red brick exterior which is reminiscent of many early stadiums. A four-story office building is located in the middle of center field, containing the team's front office, local businesses, and retail locations and ticket windows. The hill in front of it which serves as a batter's eye is known as "Greene's Hill" after former Arlington Mayor Richard Greene. Behind right field is the "Legends of the Game Baseball Museum," a 17,000 square-foot attraction open to the public year round. It contains over 1,000 baseball artifacts dating back to the 19th century, and over 135 items on loan from the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. This stadium also hosted the 1995 MLB ALL-STAR GAME.

    The park was known as "Ameriquest Field in Arlington" from 2001 to 2007. In March of that year the team ended their relationship with Ameriquest and changed the stadium's name to what it is currently. From 2004 to 2006 there was a giant bell located in section 201 which was patterned after the company's logo that rang every time a Ranger hit a home run and once for every run that the team scored in an inning. This bell left with the company.
