Texas Rangers To Allow Fans In Ballpark At Full Capacity

GLOBE LIFE FIELD, ARLINGTON TEXAS, 5-1-2020: The new home of the Texas Rangers Baseball team was scheduled to open on March 23, 2020, but is now pushed back due to the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic.

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.

Globe Life Field has a capacity of 40,300.

Do you think the Rangers should be allowing fans at full capacity inside of the ballpark? Sound off in the comments section below with your thoughts.
