Former Rangers Ivan Rodriguez and Kenny Rogers will take part in the ceremonial 1st pitch.

The new Globe Life Park is scheduled to open for the 2020 season and CBS 11 reports it will keep the Rangers in Arlington until at least 2054.

Best wishes to the Rangers and all the construction workers who will take part on the project for a great and safe build.

Hope they tint that glass!
