For Globe Life Field, patience was a virtue in 2020. The Texas Rangers were set to christen their new $1.2 billion ballpark March 14 with a Chris Stapleton/Willie Nelson concert. It didn’t happen after the pandemic shut down sports and entertainment earlier that week. In addition, Major League Baseball shortened its season to 60 games with teams playing 30 games in empty ballparks, including the Rangers’ stadium. But good things come to those who wait. The Stapleton show is now set for August, and MLB awarded the 2020 World Series and the National League Championship Series to the retractable-roof facility. Close to 12,000 fans were allowed to attend those games at the 40,300-seat stadium. Once attendance restrictions are lifted, fans will enjoy a ballpark said to have the most diverse offering of premium seats in MLB.
