ARLINGTON (105.3 THE FAN/1080 KRLD) – The Texas Rangers and City of Arlington may have reached an agreement for a new retractable-roof stadium.
Major League Baseball sources are leaking details about plans for a $900 million stadium.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports the cost of the stadium will be split between the city and the Rangers.
Arlington voters would have to approve sales, parking, and ticket taxes to dedicate to construction.
The Ballpark in Arlington opened in 1994. It was built for about $190 million and Arlington taxpayers paid more than 70 percent of that bill.
Plans reportedly call for the stadium to be completed well before the current ballpark lease expires in 2023.
