ARLINGTON (CBS 11 NEWS) - Zipped up, bundled up, and wrapped in blankets, determined Rangers fans settled for the coldest start of a day game in ballpark history.

“Don’t you just love it when it’s 37 degrees wind chill with the wind blowing in your face. Great day for baseball,” said Mark Neyland, of Fort Worth.

In downtown Dallas, meanwhile – a rare sight. The popular Klyde Warren park sat completely empty. Even the food trucks stayed home.

Joshua High School’s cheerleaders huddled together outside the American Airlines Center, waiting to get inside to perform at the Mavericks game

Hidden under layers of clothes, 4 year old Emily stood in line with her parents, too.

“It’s cold,” she said.

As the sun went down over Texas Motor Speedway, hundreds of race fans took shelter in warm luxury of their RV’s

“Well, you get cool, but you just put another layer of clothes on,” said Don Backen.

But, a few hardy souls prepared to spend the cold night sleeping in a tent.

“I am very bundled up. Yea, three coats. I have a fourth one drying,” Kaylynn McLillen.
