Professional Baseball in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex

By

The Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex has five professional baseball teams. Nearly every evening between March and October, one of these teams will be playing. You can find a range of possibilities--from luxurious amenities to more casual accommodations. Take the kids or take a date.

Texas Rangers

The Texas Rangers are the Metroplex's Major League team. They play at the Ballpark at Arlington which seats more than 49,000 fans. Tickets sell for $6-$105 with a wide range of locations and prices between those two numbers. Concessions are sold at the ballpark. If you can't make it to the game, listen to it on KRLD 1080 (AM) in English and KFLC 1270 (AM) in Spanish.

Frisco Roughriders

The Frisco Roughriders belong to the Texas League and are the affiliate team of the Texas Rangers, meaning the Rangers look to the Roughriders to groom players who don't yet have a place on the Rangers. They play their home games at the Dr. Pepper Ballpark in Frisco. Tickets sell for $9-$18, depending on location. Roughriders games are broadcast on KKGM 1630 (AM) or you can listen online from their web site.

Fort Worth Cats

The Fort Worth Cats belong to the AAA American Association and play at LaGrave Field in Fort Worth. They are not currently affiliated with a major league team, but in the 1940s and 1950s, the Cats were affiliated with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Today, the name of their mascot, Dodger, reflects that history. Tickets sell for $4-$12 for individual seats or $40 for a Plaza Table, which seats four. Outside food and drinks are not allowed in LaGrave Field, but tailgating in the parking lot is allowed. Cats games are broadcast on KHFX 1460 (AM).

Tarrant Blue Thunder

The Tarrant Blue Thunder belong to the Continental Baseball League and play at the Crosstimbers Ballpark in North Richland Hills (just north of Fort Worth). Tickets sell for $6 for adults and $4 for kids. Bring lawn chairs or a blanket to watch the game from. Games are broadcast live online. Check the left column of the Tarrant Blue Thunder web site for instructions.

Grand Prairie AirHogs

The Grand Prairie AirHogs belong to the American Association and play at the Stadium at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie. The Stadium features a sports-themed restaurant, cigar bar, and kids' zone. Season tickets cost $288-$480 per seat.
