Ought to followers select to enterprise out to Arlington and put life and limb on the road, they’re going to get AC and a pleasant, close-up view of this monstrosity:

There’s one thing very … warehouse-y in regards to the park, particularly when you think about the allure that newer ballparks usually have. Whereas not everybody has been in a position to replicate these outcomes, there are loads examples of recent ballparks which have souls. Whether or not it is Citi Discipline with its trendy utilities however old-timey really feel or Goal Discipline with its signature look, baseball stadiums usually showcase a signature allure. To not get too traditionalistic, however the look of a baseball stadium is a part of what makes baseball, baseball.
If there’s any comfort, the within of the park appears a lot, a lot nicer and homely:
Whereas the within of the stadium is far nicer (and air conditioned), evidently, not everybody is worked up in regards to the look of the Rangers’ new digs, and Twitter determined to rag on it in typical Twitter vogue:

Rangers offered their soul for A/C… The brand new stadium is probably the most boring ugliest factor I’ve seen in awhile. To go from the ballpark in Arlington, to this airplane hanger, appears like a metal store constructing. https://t.co/1iCzx6rcv5
