How will Globe Life Field be different from Globe Life Park?
The first MLB game at Globe Life Field next year will be a March 23 preseason exhibition between the Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals.
It now appears the Rangers have a first game at their new ballpark that counts.
MLB won’t release the 2020 schedule until August or September, and changes could be made to it. March 31 isn’t set in stone, but that’s reportedly how MLB has it now.
That scenario would have the Rangers opening the 2020 season on the road, as expected. The exhibition game will serve as a dress rehearsal of sorts, and the Rangers’ operations team can iron out any wrinkles discovered March 23.
