The Ballpark in Arlington. Property of the Texas Rangers. I am ready…
Constructed in 1994, the Ballpark was created by David M. Schwarz Architectural Services of Washington, D.C. The Rangers chose to construct a retro-style ballpark, incorporating a lot of functions of baseball’s Jewel Box parks. A roofed home run porch in proper field is reminiscent of Tiger Stadium, while the white steel frieze that surrounds the upper deck was copied from the pre-1973 Yankee Stadium. The out-of-town scoreboard (removed in 2009 and replaced with a state-of-the-art videoboard) was built into the left-field wall—a nod to Fenway Park, while the several nooks and crannies in the outfield fence are a reminder of Ebbets Field. The park’s red brick and granite exterior was copied from Oriole Park at Camden Yards, whilst the arched windows are a reminder of Comiskey Park. Nonetheless, it has a couple of distinct characteristics of its personal. Several conventional Texas-style stone carvings are visible throughout the park. A four-story workplace creating in center field encloses the park, with a white steel multilevel facade equivalent to the facade on the roof. -wiki
