2023 Texas Rangers Game Day Guide For Fans

The Texas Rangers are looking to turn things around and start this fresh 2023 MLB season with a bang.

Playing at Globe Life Field at home, the Rangers hope to book a winning season after having not done so in the last six years. They notched 68 wins last season and the last time the Rangers made a run was in the 2016 ALDS but were swept by the Toronto Blue Jays.

Manager Bruce Bochy brings experience and a culture of winning to the team. The Rangers signed a five-year $185 million deal with Cy Young winner Jacob deGrom and have spent $750 million in contracts over the last two years, including contracts with Nathan Eovaldi, Andrew Heaney and Martin Perez with hopes that this refreshed pitching staff will make waves.

Sports gambling in Texas is still in the works, but there is plenty to enjoy while rooting on the Rangers. Fans can get a glimpse into some helpful gameday tips and fun things to do in and around the field.

Navigating your way to Globe Life Field

If you’re a fan flying in to watch a game in Arlington, there are two potential airports to choose from:

  • Dallas/Ft. Worth (DFW) Airport – 10.5 miles
  • Dallas (DAL) Airport – 15 miles

Driving in from the east or west means a simple route on the I-30. If you’re coming from Dallas/Ft. Worth airport, you can take Highway 360. Coming from Waco, you can hop on the I-35 North and find your way to the I-30.

Tailgating is welcome

Tailgating is allowed within most of the Rangers parking lots at the field. The lots that do not permit tailgating are lots A, B and T.


The timeframe for entry is from when the parking lots open until the end of the second inning. Open flames and deep fryers are not allowed.

Parking ranges from $15 up to $35 and bus/RV parking is $50 to $100. Fans can park a couple of hours before the game at the earliest

Accommodations and things to do

There are many hotels in the area, so here is a look at three that are close by:

  • Live! By Loews
  • Courtyard by Marriott Dallas/Arlington
  • Holiday Inn Express & Suites Arlington

The surrounding area has many attractions. These include

  • The Arlington Music Hall
  • Texas Live! 
  • Six Flags
  • The Dyno-Rock Indoor Climbing Center

Where to eat in and around the ballpark

One of the best ways to enjoy a baseball game is to pair it with some delicious grub. If you’re looking for something outside of the ballpark, here are some fan favorites nearby:

  • Lockhart Smokehouse
  • Sports and Social
  • Troy’s pub

If you’re already at Globe Life Field there are many options at nearby Texas Live! Entertainment Center. Some specialty items include a two-foot hot dog from Broomstick and a two-foot chicken tender from Fowl Pole.

Of course, this is Texas, so barbecue items such as brisket nachos and brisket egg rolls are popular choices.

Beer can also be purchased at many of the Barrel Up stands around the ballpark.
