Globe Life Field is the newest MLB stadium, opening as the new home of the Texas Rangers in 2020.

Globe Life Field replaced Globe Life Park, which opened in 1994 as The Ballpark in Arlington. That ballpark still exists today, as Choctaw Stadium, home of the Arlington Renegades in the revived XFL.

As for Globe Life Field, although the COVID-19 pandemic delayed its opening by several months, the Rangers’ new home field hosted its first regular season game on July 24, 2020, three days after its first exhibition game.

Globe Life Field also ranks among the smallest MLB stadiums in use today.
