ARLINGTON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – The Texas Rangers’ new home, Globe Life Field, is now 94% complete with less than a month left until the stadium’s first event.
Officials said Globe Life Field hit a milestone Tuesday morning when crews and students from Arlington ISD performed a “Super Flush,” which involved the flushing of hundreds of toilets inside the stadium at the same time to make sure the plumbing systems are working properly.
