Bobblehead collectors, start your engines: The Texas Rangers have finalized their 2017 promotion and ticket schedule, and opportunities lie ahead. The season also includes a pre-game ceremony on August 12, prior to the Rangers-Astros game, to retire the uniform number 7 of former player Pudge Rodriguez, a new member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
Individual tickets for all 2017 games at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, except the home opener on April 3, will go on sale on March 3 at 9 am. You can get them at the Globe Life Park in Arlington First Base Box Office, at texasrangers.com, or by phone at 972.RANGERS.
For the fourth year, "dynamic" ticket pricing will be utilized in all individual seating categories for all games. In partnership with Qcue, a software company, the Rangers will set and adjust ticket prices higher or lower for each game in real-time, based on market demand and factors such as pitching matchups, team performance, opponent, weather, and day of week. Dynamic ticket pricing will apply for all tickets except children’s tickets in the Upper Reserved category.
The home opener at Globe Life Park in Arlington is on April 3, against the Cleveland Indians, with a start time of 6:05 pm, and there is only one way to purchase single-game tickets. You must be willing to sign up for the Texas Rangers email list, then you'll be entered into a pool of randomly selected registrants who get access to buy tickets online, based on inventory. A limited number of reserved seats, obstructed view seating, and standing room only tickets will be available. Deadline to sign up at texasrangers.com/OpeningDay is March 6 at 5 pm.
There is one other way to guarantee tickets for the home opener: purchase a full season and partial season ticket plan. For more information, go to texasrangers.com.
