How loud is it inside Globe Life Field for the World Series?
The Star-Telegram was interested to find out. Here are some readings from moments at the game, recorded by staff writers Lawrence Dow and Harrison Mantas. They used the Decibel X app to measure the noise.
A few decibel comparisons: 20 (a ticking watch), 85 (city traffic, a noisy restaurant), 100 (roaring motorcycle), 135 (jet engine), 140 (gunshot).
Here are moments at Globe Life Field on Friday:
▪ When the gates had just opened the decibel reading was at 58 but jumped up to 105.1 once player introductions began with the loudest cheers for ALCS MVP Adolis Garcia.
▪ The national anthem clocked in at 106.9 and former President George Bush’s first pitch came in at 103.4 after Pudge Rodriguez amped the crowd up.
▪ After the Rangers scored the first run of the game off an Evan Carter double the decibel level was 109.3.
▪ Mitch Garver’s bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the third inning hit 107.9 on the app.
▪ The crowd noise reached 101.1, as loud as it had in innings, after Adolis Garcia’s eighth-inning single against Kevin Ginkel.
▪ Garcia got the crowd going again in the top of the ninth inning (100.4) with a spectacular catch at the right field wall.
▪ After Corey Seager’s game-tying two-run homer the crowd reached its loudest level of night hitting 112 decibels.
▪ The crowd had their loudest boos of the night (101.2) after Adolis Garcia was hit by Paul Sewald.
▪ Adolis Garcia hits the bomb to win the game, hitting 104.2 decibels.
