The Texas Rangers have indefinitely furloughed 60 full-time employees in response to financial repercussions from COVID-19 and an empty new stadium.
While the organization had hoped to avoid furloughs, Rangers owner Ray Davis said the financial consequences of COVID-19 and an uncertainty of when fans will be allowed to attend games forced the decision.
The furloughed employees worked in both baseball operations and the team’s business office. They made up roughly 12 percent of the organizations’ 500 full-time employees.
