Rangers Planning Ballpark Expansion

The Rangers will pitch the expansion plan to Arlington City Council members Tuesday



    The Rangers are asking for permission to spend $10 million to update Rangers Ballpark in Arlington at Tuesday's city council meeting. Arlington City Council will make a decision on the budget on Oct. 16. (Published Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2012)

    Hot on the heels of breaking the three million home attendance barrier for the first time in franchise history, the Texas Rangers are making multimillion dollar plans to add to that attendance in 2013.

    Arlington City Council members will hear a pitch from Rangers officials Tuesday on the team's plan to add additional seating behind home plate, and expansion plans to the concession options at the ballpark.

    The Rangers expect to spend $10 million on the project, which would start after the 2012 season ends.

    The Rangers must go before Arlington City Council since the City of Arlington owns Rangers Ballpark.

    Council members are expected to vote on the matter in mid-October.
