The Ballpark in Arlington, the home of baseball's Texas Rangers, used about 840,000 "Ranger Red" bricks with Endicott trim on the upper arches. A lower and upper set of concrete arches form the outer walls of the $191 million ballpark which was completed in just 23 months. Concession stands and rest rooms are brick or block.
