The Texas Rangers are inviting fans out to the new ballpark Saturday as part of the sponsored Comerica Peek at the Park at Texas Live!
The free event runs Saturday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. and will allow fans to get a behind-the-scenes look at the new Globe Life Field from a special viewing area on the outfield's main concourse.
