Rangers fill stands with fans, who accept ‘calculated risk’

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Texas Rangers are the first team to approach capacity with their stadium since the coronavirus shutdown of sports more than a year ago. The crowd at Globe Life Field was announced as a sellout at 38,238 for the home opener against Toronto on Monday. Susanna Frare says she and her family it was a “calculated risk” to attend. The Rangers have gained national attention with their plan to fill their year-old stadium. The roof was open. Infectious disease experts are mixed on the view of the club’s decision. The $1.2 billion stadium opened last year, but no fans were permitted during the regular season. Texas lost 6-2 on Monday.
