For all of us Rangers fans longing for a return to the ballpark while sitting in front of the TV broadcasts instead of looking for ourselves among the DoppleRanger cutouts in the stands, the ball club has provided another way to make the virtual connection.
Among the many experiences of actually being inside the new Globe Life Field, a trip to the concession stands to get some ballpark food would likely be high on the list for almost everyone. So, the Rangers have introduced a way to achieve that result by bringing some of the favorite selections directly to your home and make shut-in viewing a little more like the real thing.
It’s called “Field to Table,” and you can find all the selections and details of how it works at Rangers.TryHungry.com.
There you will discover how to bring an essential part of the ballpark experience right to your front door with zero contact required. Each order also includes a Globe Life Field doormat and souvenir stein. It’s available to all of Arlington, and the food will arrive in temperature-controlled packages with reheating instructions. It gets to you an hour before the first pitch, but you will need to place your order 24 hours in advance. So, plan ahead.
Here’s how the Rangers describe the time for delivery: “Your Delivery Captain will call or text you in the morning of your order and again 20-60 minutes prior to arrival. You confirm that you will be there to receive your order and that someone is present to receive it, we do not leave food at the door unless instructed to do so by you by phone, text or in the order notes.”
Okay, so what’s to choose from? There are four packs of the most popular selections usually found at the ballpark. The Grand Slam Pizza & Wings includes two 10-inch “build your own” pizzas where you choose up to three toppings, 12 jumbo wings with ranch dressing, celery, and carrots, two Cracker Jacks (of course), peanuts, and three Coca-Cola beverages.
Or, you may like the Ballpark Triple Play that comes with three Nolan Ryan Beef Patties, buns, American cheese, lettuce, red onions, tomatoes and pickles, three Nolan Ryan Hot Dogs with buns, relish, mustard and ketchup, a Ranger Nachos with queso dip, beef chili, jalapeños and tortilla chips, two Cracker Jacks, peanuts and three Coca-Cola beverages.
The third selection is the Rangers Smoke House that includes three in-house, 14-hour Smoked Nolan Ryan Brisket Sandwiches, buns, barbecue sauce, and sweet pickles, a Nolan Ryan cheese and jalapeño sausage with bun, sautéed pepper and onions, a Rattle Snake sausage, four smoked chicken wings with barbecue sauce, a southern mustard potato salad, cilantro creamy cole slaw, two packs of kettle chips and three Coca-Cola Beverages.
Then there’s the Rangers Fiesta that comes with three Carne Asada Burritos with sour cream, salsa roja and crema, three Mucho Adobo Chicken Tinga Tacos with soft tortillas, salsa verde and cilantro, a Ranger Nachos with queso dip, beef chili, jalapeños and tortilla chips, two Mexican Street Corn with queso fresco, tajin pepper, crema, and valentina sauce, two cracker jacks, peanuts and three Coca-Cola beverages.
All of the above packs serve up to three and the cost is $80, or about $27 each – about what you would pay for this much food at most restaurants – only the Rangers bring it all to your doorstep.
If you would rather order Ala Carte, you can choose from a legendary Boomstick, turkey legs, two hot dogs, two old world bratwurst, the sausage sampler, candy bar with souvenir helmets, the famous large pretzel, mini-French pastries, a souvenir popcorn bucket, cookies and brownies box or southern peach cobbler or berry tia maria peach cobbler.
The cost of these selections ranges from $10 to $16 bucks, except for the enormous Boomstick that sells for $30.
There are plenty of Rangers games left to go in this shortened season, and this is another way to recover as much of the coveted experience of Rangers fandom in these odd days of virtual engagement.
