"This is an exciting time for the Rangers as we begin to design and program what we believe will be the best ballpark in the Major Leagues," said Rangers Executive Vice President of Business Operations Rob Matwick. "Our great fans are a big part of this process, and we are looking forward to gathering their feedback.
"We also want to thank the citizens of Arlington, Mayor Jeff Williams and all of the City leaders, and the hundreds of volunteers who helped to pass Tuesday's referendum that will allow us to make this fabulous project a reality."
The design for a new ballpark will include a retractable roof for climate control and shelter for fans during the hot summer months as well as provide a premiere baseball experience. The new park is expected to have similar design concepts featured in the construction of Globe Life Park.
Design for the new ballpark will begin immediately with construction expected to begin in the summer of 2017.
