The corporate division of Major League Baseball has confirmed the hosts for 2020s World Series. It was announced that Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas would showcase the upcoming MLB World Series, with this stadium regularly hosting the Rangers. The location was selected after discussions between the MLB Player’s Association & MLB Corporate, determined that Arlington maintains the safest facility.
Globe Life Park finished its reconstruction earlier this year, meaning it’s sanitary & has ample social distancing opportunities. It should be noted that Globe Life Park hasn’t hosted the World Series since 1944. Texas Ranger’s home stadium won’t let exclusive host the 2020 World Series, with MLB corporate’s announcing confirming that the National League Division Series Championship will also be hosted at Globe Life Park.
Hosting the World Series at Globe Life Park provides superior facilities for players and coaching staff. Locker rooms would sustain the latest technology & modern components, meaning sanitation soap could be added to showerheads. When playing championship games, Globe Life Park can open their retractable roof & add a multitude of artificial turfs. It provides notable versatility in how games are approached.
The San Diego Petco Park & Los Angeles Dodgers Stadium are hosting the “American League Division Series Championship”. Globe Life Park & Houston’s Minute Maid Park are sharing the hosting rights for the “National League Division Series Championship”. It’s unknown which teams are competing in these respective tournaments, with MLB not having half of the 60-games for their 2020 Season.
Supporters of the Texas Rangers haven’t been thrilled by this announcement. The Rangers are listed last in the “American League – West Division”, having little opportunity to enter the post-season championship tournaments. Watching other players & teams compete on their home turf at Globe Life Park is cruel.
When questioned on why the Arlington-located stadium in Texas was selected, the MLB Deputy Commissioner cited that infectious disease experts were asked to provide data on which towns are safest. Arlington, Los Angeles, and San Diego were selected. Considering that all three nations are supporting notable coronavirus infections, some have questioned if Dan Halem’s reasoning is genuine.
