I’m not going to get into it here, as it makes me sad. But the opening of the 2022 MLB season has been canceled (not postponed, but CANCELED) due to labor strife. Could be more, but for now it’s just the first two series.
The Rangers issued a press release this afternoon about what’s happening ticket wise with those who have bought tickets – either individually or as a season ticket holder of some variant. Here’s that press release:
For Immediate Release Tuesday, March 1, 2022
TEXAS RANGERS UPDATED TICKET INFORMATION
Major League Baseball has yet to reach a new collective bargaining agreement with the Major League Baseball Players Association. Since it is important to have four weeks of Spring Training for players to safely prepare for the season, Opening Day of the 2022 MLB season, previously scheduled for Thursday, March 31, is being delayed. The first two series have been removed from the schedule, and, pending an agreement, the regular season for the Texas Rangers will now start on Friday, April 8 at Toronto.
The Rangers are very disappointed that we are not able to start the 2022 regular season as scheduled, and we apologize for the inconvenience this causes you. Major League Baseball is working to get the game back on the field as soon as possible.
This is certainly not a situation we wanted. We understand just how important it is to you that we get baseball back on the field. Major League Baseball’s priority now, as it has been, is to get fans in their seats as quickly as possible.
If you purchased individual tickets to a cancelled 2022 Texas Rangers game at Globe Life Field through texasrangers.com, a full refund will be automatically processed to the method of payment used at time of purchase, including service fees (if applicable). No action is needed to start the refund process.
If you purchased individual tickets for the originally scheduled 2022 regular season opener on Thursday, March 31 against the New York Yankees, those tickets will be valid for the Rangers’ 2022 home opener, when that date has been determined. Fans holding tickets for March 31 may also exchange those tickets for another 2022 game or receive a full refund.
2022 season ticket holders with full, half, or 20-game plans will be contacted by their individual ticket sales representatives to discuss their options, which include receiving a credit for cancelled games, which can be used for future 2022 game purchases including individual, group, and nightly suite rental tickets or 2023 season ticket renewals or receiving a refund for cancelled games.
For more information, please go to texasrangers.com/tickets or call 972RANGERS.
We thank you for your patience and can’t wait to see you Globe Life Field in 2022.
