The Texas Rangers have a name for their new, air-conditioned stadium with a retractable roof: Globe Life Field.

"We are so looking forward to air conditioned Globe Life Field", Arlington Mayor Pro Tem Sheri Capehart said.

The team extended their partnership with Globe Life Insurance through 2048.

Several users commented on the Rangers' tweet announcing the new name, saying Globe Life Field was a bit of a letdown. Voters approved the extension of a half-cent sales tax, 2 percent hotel-occupancy tax and 5 percent car-rental tax for the stadium. Plans call for a grand opening to start the 2020 baseball season.

The signs of a new stadium are just starting to take shape.

"Globe Life has been an outstanding partner over the last four years, and the Rangers are excited that this relationship will continue long into the future", Ray Davis, Co-chairman and Managing Partner fo the Texas Rangers, said in a statement.

The new stadium is being built adjacent to the existing ballpark and in conjunction with the Texas Live! entertainment district.

"We thank Globe Life for its commitment as the naming rights partner for the lovely new Globe Life Field and for being a leader in its community efforts with our youth".

Globe Life says it has 1,500 employees based in McKinney.
