The Texas Rangers say their new stadium is 98% complete.
The first public event is set for Saturday, March 14, a concert featuring Chris Stapleton and Willie Nelson.
The Rangers will play the St. Louis Cardinals in an exhibition game on March 23.
The regular season home opener is scheduled on March 31 against the Los Angeles Angels.
The stadium has 40,300 seats.
The roof at Globe Life Field will be the first of its kind in baseball. With portions made of a transparent material, Rangers fans will enjoy outdoor ambience in air-conditioned comfort. The roof will retract in a matter of minutes, bringing the great outdoors to the ballpark experience.
Because of the venue size, design, central location, and state-of-the-art technology, Globe Life Field will host a multitude of events like collegiate sports, concerts, festivals, and other professional sporting events.
