Mayor Jeff Williams did not rule out a new stadium for the Texas Rangers when the team’s lease expires in eight years, but he said there is currently no plan to build one.

“When the time is right, we will be talking with the Rangers trying to find out what their needs are and what we can do to best maximize the attendance and benefits... both to the Rangers and to the City of Arlington,” Williams said during an appearance on WFAA's Inside Texas Politics Sunday morning.

Last month, the city and the Rangers announced Texas Live!, a new upscale 300-room hotel and retail development anchored by Globe Life Park.

Baltimore, Kansas City, Los Angeles, and St. Louis have similar developments adjacent to sports stadiums.

Texas Live! will generate 1,800 new jobs, Williams said, and construction will begin this year.

But is a hotel and shopping enough to keep Major League Baseball in Arlington?

“It does continue to strengthen a relationship with the Rangers that has been there for 40 years,” Williams told WFAA. “This project was actually derived by the Texas Rangers to increase attendance and the opportunity for entertainment.”

Attendance for games has been on a decline in the last three seasons, and is currently at its lowest level since 2009.

Globe Life Park opened in 1994. Though the open-air stadium is arguably in very good condition, some fans complain it is too hot to watch games during the summer.

The Rangers have said they would like a domed stadium, according to the Star-Telegram, a WFAA media partner. The Houston Astros have a retractable roof at Minute Maid Park.

Rumors persist that Dallas would like to recruit the Rangers to move east on Interstate 30, something Arlington’s Mayor Williams said he is aware of.

“I am always concerned about every one of our major stakeholders — and even our small businesses in town — to make sure that we retain them,” Williams told WFAA.

With the team’s lease set to expire in 2024, the mayor suggested that negotiations to keep the Rangers in Arlington are a ways off.

We only want our ballpark to LOOK retro. Heaven forbid it actually BECOME retro...
My safety word is "Keep Going."

Houston has a nicely roofed location, which is not being used right now.

They should have built a roofed stadium in the first place. They knew the problems with the old Stadium and just ignored it.

Yeah, but 1994 Arlington, Texas isn't seriously thinking about that.

I blame Bush.

Been here twice and can't say I really enjoyed any part of this place. The heat is just heat, but you really have no sense of strolling into a baseball game here. Favorite part was being yelled at by one of the security workers for walking down the escalators. I suppose he was told it's another Six Flags ride.
