While we were on a recent trip to Dallas, Texas, we decided to take in a Texas Rangers baseball game at the stadium in Arlington. The stadium is between the large cities of Dallas and Fort Worth.
The stadium itself was very pretty. I have only ever seen professional baseball played in an indoor stadium, so it was a neat experience to see a game in an outdoor ball park.
At the street entrance to the center field portion of the stadium is a “kids fun park” with a variety of games for kids. One is a kid’s home run game that is played from time to time over the big screens during the game.
We received some great service – even a partial “behind the scenes” view of the ball park from one of the ushers at the park. He was very nice and helpful and pointed out what a great deal we received on our tickets (we purchased them from someone in the parking lot).
My favorite thing was an old woman in our section who had a drum that she would beat (very loudly) every time the Rangers made a good play. All the workers (beer guys, ushers, etc) stopped by to say hello to her – so you could tell she was a regular. It is great to see such a fan!
If you are ever in the Arlington area during baseball season, I recommend you at least go take a look at the AmeriQuest field.
