Fans can watch construction progress at texasrangers.com/globelifefield
The Cowboys are out of the playoffs and spring training is few months off. But Texas Rangers fans will be able to watch the construction progress of the team’s new ballpark, Globe Life Field, through the lens of a time-lapse camera that became operational Jan. 3.
The camera feed, which is programmed on a delayed basis, can be viewed 24 hours a day at
texasrangers.com/globelifefield. Fans will be able to pan and zoom in on different images of the camera feed using the technology available on the website.
The camera was manufactured by EarthCam and was installed by Manhattan Construction, the general contractor of Globe Life Field. The camera is mounted on the back of the right field video board of Globe Life Park in Arlington and provides a view looking south on the 13-acre Globe Life Field construction site.
Founded in 1996, EarthCam is a New Jersey-based company providing webcam content, technology, and services.
Groundbreaking on the 1.1 billion dollar ballpark took place in late September. General site excavation, installation of the soil retention system, pier drilling, and running of underground utilities are the principle construction activities currently in progress. The 1.7 million square foot facility is scheduled to be completed for the 2020 season.
