It’s Baseball Season in Texas, and nothing could be more fun than a day out cheering for the Rangers!

Tips for getting cheap seats

Coca Cola Tuesdays on any Tuesday and use code COKE50 for discounts on tickets, parking, food and more!

Gametime is my new go-to for cheap tickets, where you can purchase tickets as low as $2, plus some online fees.

Check out the MLB Texas Rangers site, Ticket Technology, for more information.

Check out Rate Your Seats for the best up to date information on seats with shade and unobstructed views.

Before the Game

Make a full day of it!

The Rangers Gates normally open 2 hours before Game Time for night games, and 1.5 hours before the afternoon games.  The teams are usually taking batting practice, and will sign autographs up to 45 minutes before the game starts, so be sure and bring your ball to be signed!

A Pregame Tour can be purchased allowing for early admission to the park to watch batting practice from above the dugout, as well as a mini-tour.

Globe Life Field Tours Tours are offered year round.


Parking generally ranges from $15 – $40/car, and there is some off-site parking available, also. We ALWAYS park at the $20 parking lot on Stadium, just north of Division.

There is also a Parking Map on the MLB Texas Rangers website.

The Hilton Hotel Arlington and the Arlington Sheraton  (I love the outdoor pool at the Sheraton) offers FREE shuttles to both Globe Life Field and AT&T Stadium, as well as Texas Live, Six Flags and other local destinations.  The bright red Arlington Trolley is just as much fun to ride as it is to wave to when you see it riding down the street!

Tailgating We’ve been to a few tailgating parties at the Ballpark, which are always a good time!  Tailgating is not allowed in the parking area, but is allowed before the game through the 2nd inning in the grassy area bordering the parking area, and for an hour after the game ends.

What to Eat Globe Life Field offers some amazing, unique eats, however my favorite is the big Beef Rib at Hurtado’s BBQ!

What you can bring with you Outside food in a clear, quart size container and an unopened, unflavored water bottle are allowed.

I like to bring a small pack of baby wipes, because our hands are always sticky after eating in the stands, and it’s such a walk to the restroom!

Oatly Park and Kid’s Zone

Take a break from the game at the Kid’s Zone, a fun place for kids! There’s a whiffle ball park and small play structures.

After the Game

If you leave and find yourself with a dead battery, the Texas Rangers have people to help you get a jump start.  Just find a parking attendant to help you!
