You know we like to have a good time, especially when there are major event happening in The District! Globe Life Field isn't just home to baseball but to massive concerts and global events. When you're here, we want you to have THE BEST time. 

Here’s all the tips and tricks you need to know before you go to Globe Life Field:

1. Rain or shine, it’s still game on.

With the 5.5-acre retractable roof, you’ll never again have to worry about the game or concert being rained out or if you’re going to melt from the Texas heat during those summer games. But on those perfect weather days, the roof can retract in just 12 minutes. It’s truly the best of both worlds.

Fun fact: The retractable roof at Globe Life Field is the largest single-panel operable roof in the world and weighs a whopping… 24 million pounds!

2. There’s an app for that!

Download the MLB Ballpark app to access your digital tickets, and get parking information, PLUS! interactive maps and directories with food and drink menus, all at your fingertips. It’s never been easier to find a hotdog stand or the restroom!

3. Your [cash] money is no good here.

Leave the cash at home because Globe Life Field is a cashless venue, including parking. Those ballpark nachos and ice-cold beer can only be paid for by credit card, Apple Pay, or Google Pay.

3. Beep Beep!

Stressing about parking? Ain’t nobody got time for that! Especially, when you’re in a World of Wonderful! Plan ahead by purchasing your parking passes online and picking the lot you want to park in. The MLB Ballpark app will keep your parking pass in safe keeping until game day. If you don’t pre-purchase parking, you can still drive up and pay to park at the lot entrance. Cashless, of course.

(Pssst! When it comes to getting to and from the stadium, check out the shuttle options from J. Gilligan's Bar & Grill or Grease Monkey! If you are utilizing any ride-share service, please be aware of the ride-share zones for pick-up and drop-off. Pick-up and drop-off are not allowed on Randol Mill Rd - you don't want a traffic ticket to ruin your game day experience!)

4. BAGS.

When it comes to the all-important bag policy, Globe Life Field keeps it pretty simple. Bags or purses must be soft sided and be 16” x 16” x 8” or smaller and leave the backpack at home.

See? Simple.

5. Go behind the scenes.

Kick off your game day with a PreGame Tour! Get a glimpse of the game day prep throughout the ballpark, visiting premium spaces and learning about the history and events of the Texas Rangers Baseball Club. End the tour behind the dugout for a front-row seat watching warm-ups and batting practice before the gates open to the public!

6. Hey Alexa, play the Globe Life Field Gameday playlist on Spotify.

That’s right. Get ready for game time and crank up this mix of rock and country classics, pop favorites, player walk-up songs, and ballpark classics.
