Texas Rangers stadium vote passes in landslide

Home-field advantage didn’t help the Texas Rangers in last month’s playoffs. But on Tuesday, it landed them a new $1 billion, retractable roof stadium. An Arlington proposition to help fund at least half of the new ballpark passed easily with the opposition conceding early in the evening. The deal will keep the Rangers in their original hometown through the team’s 82nd season, which would come in 2053.
