After starting the season with a weekend series in Seattle, the Rangers will come home on March 31 to open Globe Life Field against the Los Angeles Angels.

First game at the new ballpark against LAA

From that point, 12 out of their 14 will also be at home. The mix of excitement of hopefully a new look Rangers team and the buzz of a new stadium will have fans packing the stadium to start a new season. 

Six straight games against AL’s two best teams

From April 10 to April 15, the Rangers will be hosting the two best teams in the American League. Three games against the Astros from April 10-12 and three against the Yankees April 13-15 and the Rangers will be up against the best of the best quickly out of the gate. A 6-11 record against the Astros so far will be looking to be improved on, while the club has not played the Yankees yet this season. The rough tests will be coming quickly to Globe Life Field. 

May will be rough

There are many reasons this month is going to be brutal for the club. The first one is that there is only two off days. Both fall on Mondays, on May 18 and May 25. Before that break of May 18, the Rangers will have played 17 straight games. The first 10 out of those 17 are on the road against teams expected to push for the playoffs. Boston, Cleveland and Tampa for a 10 game road trip, then seven games against Toronto and Boston again. Once the off day comes, they’ll be out west to be in Oakland. Not a lot of rest is in store for this team in May, especially in the first half.  

August is a winnable month

The Rangers play eight different teams in August. Only one of those teams are currently in a playoff position. That one team is the Astros and we can expect them to be just as good next year. A lot can change in a year and teams can get better, but the Rangers have 11 games against the Tigers and Orioles in August. Those are the two worst teams in all of baseball next year and will most likely be there again next year. Four games against the Phillies and Rockies come at home and the Astros series will be on the road. While there are 14 away games and only 12 home games, the quality of teams will be poor in a crucial month. 

NL Stars coming to Globe Life Field

Getting the NL East as their interleague division this year, a lot of start will be coming to Globe Life Field. From the incredible pitching rotation of the Nationals that feature Strasburg, Scherzer and Corbin to the incredible bats of Bryce Harper, Juan Soto, Pete Alonso, Ronald Acuna Jr, and Rhys Hoskins will have their chance to mash out of the new ballpark. Arguably the most intriguing player to come through in 2020 will be Nolan Arenado. The Rockies are the natural rival this season and most Rangers fans had hopes Arenado would be playing third base in Globe Life Field. He will be, just for the Rockies.

A lot of stars Rangers fans do not get to see every year will be in Arlington.
