Rangers adding new scoreboard, foul poles to Globe Life Park in 2016 (Photos)
The Texas Rangers unveiled some new aesthetic changes for Globe Life Park that will take effect in time for the 2016 season.
The biggest addition will be a gigantic 34-by-94 LED video board that will stand tall above the visitors' bullpen area in center field:
In addition to the new video board, the club announced that it will be swapping out the foul poles it has used since 1972 for new editions...giving fans a special opportunity at the team's upcoming Fan Fest later this month (as shared to Twitter by Jeff Wilson of the Star-Telegram):
Team executive vice president of ballpark entertainment and productions Chuck Morgan spoke of the new ballpark changes with MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan:
"We owe Texas Rangers fans nothing but the best fan experience when they visit Globe Life Park in Arlington.
"The addition of a new Daktronics HD-quality video board in left field falls right in line with our ownership's commitment to having the best ballpark experience for our fans. Just as the Globe Life Park upgrades have done in previous years, the addition of this video board will add to the in-stadium experience and create a unique atmosphere that you cannot get at home."
The Rangers are coming off a great AL West-winning season in 2015, and they'll do so with some flashy new changes at their home stadium in 2016.
