Happy days are here again

Ameriquest Field is no more. Long live Rangers Ballpark in Arlington!

Personally, I could have done without the addition of “Rangers” to the original name for the park, but I can live with it. I never cared for the corporatization of The Ballpark’s name; why would you rush to rename your ball field when it has such a classic name as “The Ballpark at Arlington”? I pretty much refused to dignify the corporate name by speaking it, and have continued, lo these many years, to simply refer to it as “The Ballpark”. And now it’s “The Ballpark”—only with “Rangers” in there, too—once again.

Best of all, that stupid bell in the left field mid deck is gone, gone, gone!
