The referendum to approve a new ballpark in Arlington for the Texas Rangers has been voted on today, and Arlington Mayor Jeff Williams is “declaring victory,” according to T.R. Sullivan on Twitter.

Assuming that’s the case, the Rangers should be playing in a new ballpark possibly as early as 2020. The park is going to be built where part of the parking lot is now.

Our post back in May when the deal was announce is here, and you can see the artist’s rendering of the new park.
