The Texas Rangers on Wednesday announced a handful of new food, beverage and bag policies for fans attending games at Globe Life Field this season.
The changes will go into effect Friday, the first day of a five-game homestand with the Tampa Bay Rays.
“We are instituting these revised food/beverage and bag policies for the convenience of our guests,” said Rob Matwick, Rangers executive vice president of business operations, in a statement. "These policies are the original ones we planned to have for Globe Life Field at the start of the 2020 baseball season prior to the pandemic."
