Texas Rangers to Increase Fan Safety and Raise Railing Height at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington
The Texas Rangers are being proactive to try and avoid the tragedy that took place July 8th from ever happening again.The Rangers have announced they will make some improvements to the Ballpark in Arlington to try and make the environment still enjoyable but more safe for the fans.
The ball club has announced they will increase the railing height of all rails in front of seating areas. The rails are already above the necessary established standards. The railings are currently 2 feet and 10 inches tall but the Rangers will increase that height to 3 1/2 feet.
Until the installation of the new railings are completed the Rangers will have more security officers throughout the stadium, signs posted to encourage fans to behave safely and there will be announcements warning fans of the dangers of leaning over the railing.
It has not been announced if the Ranger players will no longer throw foul balls into the stands.
