The Texas Ranger saw a lot of fans in the stands - 40,000 to be exacr - despite the ongoing Covid pandemic.
The Texas Rangers fell 6-2 to the Toronto Blue Jays in front of more than 38,000 fans. Yes, you read that correctly. In a stadium that can fit approximately 40,000 fans, 38,238 people attended the team's home-opening loss.
The Texas Rangers did not violate any state protocols during their home opener. Texas GovernorGreg Abbottlifted the statewide mask mandate last month and has allowed businesses to operate at 100% capacity. In fact, Abbott was supposed to throw the opening pitch at the baseball game, but he decided not to do so after the MLB moved their all-star game out of the state of Georgia due to the passing of S.B. 202.
