There were plenty of familiar faces amongst the sellout crowd for the Texas Rangers' final game at Globe Life Park in Arlington.

It was a particularly meaningful moment for members of the Bush family who sat front-and-center for the matchup against the New York Yankees on Sunday. Jenna Bush Hager, her six-year-old daughter Mila, and her parents Laura and former president George W. were there to bid farewell to the park that's been a part of their lives for decades.

Jenna, 37, shared a series of family photos from the game—which also happened to be Mila's first—on Instagram including a bonus appearance by Texas designer and close family friend, Lela Rose.

"Sweetest first baseball game for Mila—last game in the stadium that for the last 26 years brought us so many memories," the mom-of-three captioned her sentimental ‘gram (below). "I was Mila's age when my dad first started working for the Rangers, taught me to keep score and under these Texas stars we met some dear friends."

The Rangers are moving across the street from Globe Life Park to Globe Life Field. The new stadium, which The Dallas Morning News reports will open in March, will boast a retractable roof, climate control, and state-of-the-art technology.

George W. served as managing general partner of the Rangers from 1989 to 1994. It was during this time that the beloved ballpark was designed and built.

"It really is a reminder of this wonderful partnership we had," Bush, who had to give up ownership of the Rangers after he was elected Texas governor in 1994, told ESPN. "And sitting in this cathedral we built, it means a lot."
