Arlington, Texas-The Texas Rangers today announced a series of new safety initiatives at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

"The safety of our fans is our top priority," commented Rangers CEO and President Nolan Ryan. "The initiatives we are announcing today for Rangers Ballpark in Arlington will help to ensure that we meet that priority."

Over the past ten days, the Rangers have consulted with a number of industry experts to discuss options concerning the rail heights at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. Even though all current rail heights in Rangers Ballpark in Arlington currently exceed code, the Rangers intend to raise the height of all rails in front of seating areas to the highest standard in the United States at this time.

While work is being done on design and engineering for the refitted rails, the Rangers are taking the following interim steps to remind fans about their safety when seated near the rails at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington:

  1. New signage is being installed on the railings at the base of the aisles and in front of front row seating, which states "DO NOT LEAN, SIT ON, OR STAND AGAINST RAIL". The signage will be on the railings in front of all outfield seating from foul pole to foul pole and on all upper level seating, including the two suite levels.
  2. A pre-game warning with the same information will be made prior to the start of each game over the Ballpark's public address system and on the scoreboards.
  3. Security and Customer Service staff will enforce this policy with guests seated near the rails.
  4. The initiatives listed above will be in place when the Rangers open a seven-game homestand on Friday against Toronto.
