Texas Rangers fans drinking at Globe Life Park

Beer and liquor are plentiful at Globe Life Field. But how much do Texas Rangers fans consume compared to the rest of Major League Baseball?

Box Score News and nyonlinegambling.com set out to find out, surveying more than 2,000 fans to find out their drinking habits inside and outside of MLB stadiums.

The result? Rangers fans are middle of the road when it comes to in-game drinking, but they seem to know how to prepare before the game.

The survey revealed that Rangers fans took 2.48 drinks per game, which was good for the No.19 in the standings. No. 1, fittingly, was Colorado Rockies fans, who consume 3.09 drinks per game at Coors Field.

The survey also showed that Rangers fans spend an average of $18.40 per game on alcohol.

Rangers are just below the league average spend (2.62) and just above the average spend per game ($18.13).

Now the pregame is another story. The group also surveyed fans’ drinking habits before the game, and there the Rangers came out at No. 5, behind the Chicago White Sox, Minnesota Twins, Kansas City Royals and Miami Marlins.

Rangers fans seem to be taking full advantage of the nearby Texas Live! bar scene, if these results are any indication.

If you enjoy drinking during Rangers games, either before or during the game, don’t worry. The Rangers return home Tuesday to start a nine-game home game that will feature the Kansas City Royals, Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Angels.
