“Our stated goal from the very beginning was to do the first next-generation ballpark” and with the help of Hollman Athletic Lockers, they did!
“Our stated goal from the very beginning was to do the first next-generation ballpark,” said Bryan Trubey, the executive vice president for HKS who oversees the sports practice for the Dallas-headquartered architecture company that designed the $1.2 billion facility. “We did not want to do a retro ballpark. That’s been done, with some incremental changes over time.” The 40,300-seat ballpark replaced the 25-year-old Globe Life Park with many new features including a 1,000-foot-long retractable roof.
Old ballparks don’t have massive videoboards towering high over right field, like the one in Globe Life Field that is about 40 feet inside the field of play and surely a potential target for a long Joey Gallo home run, though his first one didn’t hit it.
“It’s a very beautiful ballpark,” Gallo said before becoming the first player to homer in the new place when he pulled a deep drive down the right-field line. “I assumed it would be a pitcher’s park. … You can tell center field and the gaps are going to play really, really deep.”
Hollman worked with Manhattan Construction and HKS to design the main and visitor locker rooms for the Texas Rangers. Our Research and Development department collaborated with Rangers’ players, like Joey Gallo, to create the most functional custom locker solution for their team. All 42 lockers include an edge-lit, frosted acrylic divider with custom engraving, solid surface doors with engraved Texas state, and a concealed, wireless charging station. Each locker stands over eight feet tall and all the drawers and the closet in this locker are ventilated to keep their clothes and shoes fresh.
