THE BALLPARK IN ARLINGTON:  Rangers Ballpark in Arlington is a ballpark in Arlington, Texas, located between Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas. It was known until May 7, 2004, as The Ballpark in Arlington when Ameriquest bought the naming rights to the ballpark and named it Ameriquest Field in Arlington. Even with the changed name, many fans continued to refer to it as simply "The Ballpark" or "The Temple" (short for "The Temple of the Great Game.") On Monday, March 19, 2007, the Texas Rangers severed their relationship with Ameriquest and announced that the stadium would be named Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

The stadium was constructed as a replacement for nearby Arlington Stadium. It is home to the American League's Texas Rangers, and the Legends of the Game Baseball Museum.

TEXAS STADIUM:  Dallas Cowboys (NFL) (1971–2008) Dallas Tornado (NASL) (1972–1975, 1980–1981) SMU Mustangs (NCAA) (1979–1986)

Texas Stadium was the home field of the NFL's Dallas Cowboys, and had a seating capacity of 65,675. The stadium opened on October 24, 1971, at a cost of $35 million. In 2009, it was replaced as home of the Cowboys by the $1.15 billion Cowboys Stadium, which completed construction and officially opened on May 29, 2009 in Arlington, Texas.

The stadium was demolished by controlled implosion on April 11, 2010.

REUNION ARENA:  Dallas Mavericks (NBA) (1980–2001) Dallas Tornado (NASL INDOOR) (1980–1981) Dallas Sidekicks (MISL) (1984–2004) Dallas Texans (AFL) (1990–1993) Dallas Stars (NHL) (1993–2001) Dallas Stallions (RHI) (1999) Dallas Desperados (AFL) (2003)

Reunion Arena was an indoor arena in the Reunion district of downtown Dallas, Texas. The arena held 17,300 for basketball and 17,000 for ice hockey. It is currently being demolished, and the site is scheduled to be cleared by the end of September 2009.

The arena's last remaining full-time sports tenant was the MISL Dallas Sidekicks, but the club has been inactive since the Fall of 2004 season. The arena was the home of the Dallas Mavericks from 1980 to 2001 and the Dallas Stars from 1993 to 2001. Both teams moved to the American Airlines Center in 2001.
