Mimic Made Park

So much local/MLB debate over the new Texas Rangers Ballpark looking exactly like Minute Maid Park in Houston.....The Rangers just released some new renderings and all it does is confirm how similar the two ballparks are......its hard not to see the similarities......

I don't see it.

It's a modern ball park.

Aesthetics look different to me.

Re: Mimic Made Park

It’s a fair assessment that the similarity start and ends at retractable roof placement.......and I believe the new park looks more similar to Seattle than Houston. The Rangers did recently change the right field column arches to not face the field like Minute Maid in order to minimize the same look.

Re: Mimic Made Park

I can see it but you have to mentally rotate the stadiums to the same orientation.
