Baseball season is FINALLY upon us, and Opening Day 2022 is kicking off the Texas Rangers’ 50th Anniversary Season!
Ready to root root root for our home team? Here’s all the tips and tricks you need to know before you go:
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 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!
Make your trip even easier with the MLB Ballpark app. You can manage your digital tickets, 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 cash-less 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.
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.
5. Unlike a movie theater…
Outside food is allowed inside of Globe Life Field, if it’s inside a clear quart sized plastic bag. You can also bring in a sealed plastic water bottle (non-flavored and under 1 liter). One bag of food and one bottle of water is allowed per ticket holder.
6. Never go out of style.
Kick your game watching style up a few notches. Get tickets for Balcones Speakeasy seats for an exclusive experience complete with buffet-style small plates, in-seat service, and beverage service. Snag some of the closest seats in Major League Baseball at the StubHub Club plus all-inclusive food and beverage. Check out more Clubs to watch the game in style in the Guest Guide.
7. 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.
