Williams said Thursday’s construction milestone is the beginning of a new chapter in Arlington’s long-standing relationship with the Rangers. Globe Life Field, designed by HKS and built by Manhattan Construction Company, will set a new standard for Major League Baseball parks and help make Arlington’s Entertainment District a world-class destination, he said.“It’s another one of those dream-come-true moments here in our American Dream City. And today especially is another example of our can-do spirit,” Williams said.Manfred congratulated the Texas Rangers and the City of Arlington on the ballpark project and said he could see Globe Life Field hosting events such as an All-Star game or World Baseball Classic final.“This new ballpark will allow fans of the Rangers, fans here in Texas to enjoy Major League Baseball with added comfort. When you add to that the prospect of a project like Texas Life! that provides the type of complete entertainment experience that’s so popular in our sports, I can’t exaggerate the amount of excitement we have for this project,” Manfred said. “It really will be great for this area and great for the Rangers.”Office of Communication intern Kimberly Idrogo contributed to this report.Major League Baseball trademarks and copyrights are used with permission of MLB Advanced Media, L.P.
