The first MLB game at Globe Life Field next year will be a March 23 preseason exhibition between the Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals.
It now appears the Rangers have a first game at their new ballpark that counts.
The Associated Press reported on Wednesday that the Rangers’ first regular-season game at Globe Life Field will be held March 31 against Mike Trout, Shohei Ohtani and the Los Angeles Angels.
MLB won’t release the 2020 schedule until August or September, and changes could be made to it. March 31 isn’t set in stone, but that’s reportedly how MLB has it now.
