The Texas Rangers promised they were going to pack Globe Life Field for Opening Day and that’s exactly what has happened today in Arlington. In what has to be giving coronabros mental breakdowns, video out of the ballpark shows fans treating this like any other Opening Day before the ‘VID came to town.
At Globe Life Field, which has an official capacity of 40,300, officials asked fans to mask up unless they were eating or drinking, but as can be seen in videos and photos out of the park, the locals appear to have said to hell with that idea as they’re fully back to normal mode.
The Rangers (1-2) will have a clear home-field advantage across Major League Baseball with Colorado leading all of baseball with an average of 20,500 fans through opening weekend. The Angles and Reds were in the 12,000 range while cities like Oakland, Boston and Miami are all under 7,000 fans. It won’t take long for the Rangers to take a commanding league lead in the attendance category. Including today’s opener, Texas plays its next six games at home.
So this is what a packed ballpark feels like?! Almost forgot. What a sight! pic.twitter.com/L4nz2lc7fi
