The Texas Rangers are looking to establish a new home-field advantage for the upcoming season.
Since the coronavirus brought the sports world to a standstill almost exactly one year ago, arenas, ballparks, and stadiums have either been empty or at a very low capacity.
That is all going to change in the Lonestar State.
After Governor Greg Abbott’s decision to end the mask mandate in the state and allow businesses to be fully operational, the Rangers announced they will be allowing fans at Globe Life Field at 100 percent capacity when Opening Day rolls around this season.
However, fans will be required to wear masks.
Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reported the news on Wednesday.
