Those Rangers Ballpark Improvements Are Just First Wave; More to Come in Two, Three Years
By Brantley HargroveThu., Nov. 3 2011



Wilonsky won't say it, but I will: One week after the World Series title slipped from grasp, Rangers Ballpark in Arlington is a sad, sad place. It was quiet this afternoon, empty, and the weight of Texas hope had all but evaporated.

Instead of announcing an $11.5-million upgrade on the heels of a giddy victory, a presser with subdued chief operating officer Rick George was held in the theatre inside the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame. As noted in an earlier post, the plans include a new Batter's Eye Club (name apparently subject to change) with four rows of seating for 100 that can be rented for groups or reserved individually, a restaurant-sports bar with a box in the mezzanine for the radio guys, and an upgraded Kid's Zone -- all of it air-conditioned.

"There wasn't much time to prepare and bring it out to the public before now," said architect Mike Barnett of Sterling Barnett Little, Inc., who drew up the plans for the upgrade.

It will be the first in a multi-phase face lift, the Rangers COO says, perhaps in an effort to quiet those who keep hoping the Rangers will move into downtown Dallas sooner than later.

More upgrades on the way:

Quote:
Arlington, Texas – The Texas Rangers today announced a series of upgrades to Rangers Ballpark in Arlington that will be effective for the 2013 season.

The work will include the addition of a third row of Home Plate Seats, extensive renovations and upgrades to the private club and concessions areas behind home plate, a new retail store and concessions stands on the Main Concourse, and deeper dugouts and field camera bays.

The Rangers and Capital One Bank have entered into a multi-year partnership which includes naming rights to the private home plate club, which will be called the Capital One Club beginning for the 2013 season.

It marks the third consecutive off-season in which the club has made extensive renovations to Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, a period in which the Rangers will have allocated over 35 million dollars in ballpark improvements and upgrades. Demolition began last week. The Ballpark upgrades are expected to be completed by opening day, which is Friday, April 5, 2013.

"The Rangers are committed to providing an outstanding experience for our fans when they come to Rangers Ballpark in Arlington," commented CEO and President Nolan Ryan. "For the third consecutive off-season, we are undertaking significant renovation and upgrade projects to help achieve that goal, and we plan to continue that process over the next several years as well."

The entire project, which is estimated to cost approximately 12 million dollars, will encompass more than 32,000 square feet on the ballpark's Main Concourse and seating bowl areas.

Time to update the thread title again. Now it's called "Globe Life Park".

Is this the first time that a MLB stadium has had three different descriptions?

Rangers Ballpark
Ameriquest Field
Globe Park

I know, but what I meant were the designations like field, ballpark, stadium, park, grounds, yards etc.

I can't think of any ballparks that have had more than two different venue-type titles. This will be the third different for Arlington.
