I had a few business trips down to Arlington and got to take in some games in 2003 & 2004, plus a stadium tour in 2003. They have an excellent baseball museum. I found the seating and facilities to be excellent, and the prices weren't bad either. Despite the controversies surrounding the park and its ownership, and the woeful ways of the Rangers, this is an exceptional ballpark and definitely recommended to visit. Being outside the downtown areas is a big plus for some people, especially those of us acquainted with getting to Fenway Park...

May 25, Memorial Day, 2009. My favorite team, the Yankees, played the Rangers, and I got to see them. My brother and his wife were visiting their son and his wife, who live in DFW metro area, and they seats a few months ago. They got lower-deck seats under the overhang. We decided to go at the last minute, so we got nosebleed seats. Despite the fact it was a day game in Texas, the roof over the grandstand and the fact it wasn't summer yet made it comfortable. The view was better than I expected, since it was behind home plate. The Yankees won 11-1. Hughes was yanked after 8 with a shutout, which the reliever Alceves blew in the 9th, giving up a homer. It was strange seeing the Yankees in red caps. Turned out every team wore red caps that day. VERY picturesque ballpark. The grandstand reminded me of US Cellular in Chicago, but the outfield part was more picturesque. RF stands remind me of Shibe more than Ebbets, but in reverse.

I visited in 2008. I was stuck in OKC for work related training and saw my hometown White Sox would be in town for a three night stand while I was only 3 hours North. Went down on a Sunday morning for a afternoon game. This is a gorgeous stadium. Beautiful in every way. From your first view, to walking up to the gate, to exploring the inside, to taking your seat. Huge, clean concession area, with ample bathrooms, and clean walkways. My only problem with this satdium is that they seem to have overdone it. It is ridiculously huge. Like everything else in Texas, its just too big. Maybe they're overcompensating for something!! J/K?? Overall a pleasant baseball experience.

Attended a game in 1997, while attending a seminar at the American Airlines training center. Nice place, sat in upper deck, 1st row, near 3rd base. Waitresses brought our food. Rangers beat Tigers. Only oddity, the type of park, (a throwback, if you will) looks REALLY odd out there in the middle of 500 acres of flat, treeless land. Beautiful exterior, though.

I've been going to this stadium since I was a little kid and I love it. Glad to see that the Rangers are winning more now so the huge seating capacity is actually getting filled most nights compared to a while back when we couldn't fill 70% of the stands. Really like the overhanging second deck in right field. Reminds me of the old pictures I've seen of Tiger Stadium. I really like the outside of the stadium and the huge walkways leading up to your seat. Sometimes with there was some more shade cause it can get hot in Texas!

Truth be told, I have never been here, being a Tigers fan from Michigan, but when they remodeled The (Rangers) Ballpark In Arlington, what they should have done was to extend center field out to 440 feet or more, thereby eliminating that grass slope out there! Then put the bleachers all around behind that area, and have some sort of screen for the batter's eye, (one where the people in the bleachers could still see the game well,but it wouldn't interfere with the batter's view of the pitched ball)! Sure, that would probably eliminate the view from the office bbuilding, but only on the first floor, because of the sunken in, basement style playing field that is so popular these days, both in the minor and major leagues! At least they still have a real organ played by a live organist, better than that DJ and computer recorded music that we have in Detroit! Yeah, I am all against naming rights deals, especially when they are bought by life insurance companies that you have to be so dishonest with just to save a few bucks on something that your survivors get use of and not yourself!

Yes, The Ballpark in Arlington, or whatever it was called at a particular time, was an improvement over Arlington Stadium. However, improving upon one of the worst facilities to host any North American professional franchise since 1950 is not hard to do. I went in August 1996 to see the Rangers play the Yankees. It took 10 minutes for my clothing to be completely soaked in sweat. By the end of the evening, I felt like I had spent four hours in a broiler. Did George W. Bush and anyone else realize just how hot it is in north Texas during the summer? Why the heck was this stadium built without a roof of some sort? Even worse, the roof does not extend far enough, leaving the patrons paying good money for the box seats between the dugouts in the searing heat. Worse, the Rangers have played more day games lately. It's as if the stadium was constructed elsewhere and plopped down in the parking lot near the old Arlington Stadium. Too many poles in the grandstand. No open concourse. The designers of this park were clueless. The park is nothing to write home about.I certainly won't shed a tear when its baseball life ends after the 2019 season.
