Texas Rangers will open with 100 percent capacity for Opening Day


by - Senior Editor -

On Wednesday, the Texas Rangers announced that they are going to be wide open business-wise for 2021 Opening Day.

“The Rangers are encouraged that the Governor’s Office has given clearance for us to fully open Globe Life Field at the start of the 2021 Major League Baseball season,” said President of Business Operations and Chief Operating Officer Neil Leibman.

“We will require all those who enter Globe Life Field to wear a mask or face covering and are working with Major League Baseball on some additional protocols required for player health and safety. We will continue to monitor developments and implement the necessary public health measures. We are excited that Rangers fans will finally be able to experience all that Globe Life Field has to offer.”

Masks will be required for all fans except when they are eating or drinking in their seats.

This is much different than at Wrigley Field where officials announced that the Cubs could have 20 percent capacity to start the season.
