Rangers estimate Ballpark's new venues could add 40-50 seasonal jobs
Forgot to ask the Texas Rangers yesterday for an estimate on the net employment impact of the club's new venues planned for Opening Day next year.
Here's John Blake, Rangers spokesman, on that question today:
"Sportservice estimates it will provide 40 to 50 more seasonal positions in the restaurant, concessions, (and) club from a food and beverage aspect," Blake said. "From the Rangers' perspective, it is unlikely to change significantly. We operated the Children’s Sports Park but those employees would shift to the new Kid’s Zone."
