Booking Texas Rangers Player Appearances
The Texas Rangers are a Major League Baseball team in the American League West division, based in Arlington, Texas and playing home games at Rangers Ballpark, a beautiful facility that opened in 1994. The team was established in 1961, originally as the Washington Senators, an expansion team based in Washington, D.C. The Senators relocated to Texas in 1971, and became the Texas Rangers at the start of the 1972 season.
In the Rangers’ 51-year history, they’ve advanced to the postseason five times and have yet to win a World Series. Their success has come in recent years, winning two American League Pennants in 2010 and 2011, and five divisional titles that came in 1996, 1998 and 1999, in addition to the 2010 and 2011 seasons. Nolan Ryan spent the last five seasons of his career as a Texas Ranger from 1989 through 1993, and is the all-time leader in no-hitters with seven. He is currently the president and CEO of the team. Hall of Fame pitcher Ferguson Jenkins, or Fergie as he’s often called, played for the Texas team for six seasons in the mid-‘70s and early ‘80s and was the first Canadian to ever win the Cy Young Award. The 1996 Texas Rangers were the first team to advance to the postseason in Rangers’ history. Their roster included Puerto Rican outfielder Juan Gonzalez who earned 47 home runs, 144 RBIs and a .314 batting average that year and was named the American League MVP. In 1999, one of the team’s stand-out players was first baseman Rafael Palmeiro who won the Golden Glove. Today, the team is managed by Ron Washington and led by many of the same players that helped Texas repeat their 2010 American League Pennant win in 2011, including outfielder Josh Hamilton, infielder Michael Young and first baseman/catcher Mike Napoli.
