Will 2012 be the Golden Year for the Texas Rangers?
Arlington, TX (PRWEB) July 07, 2012
The Texas Rangers are based in the Dallas suburb of Arlington and they are a team in the Western Division of the American League. The history of the Texas Rangers is quite unique and very interesting. Back in 1961, the original Senators from Washington DC moved to the state of Minnesota and eventually became the Minnesota Twins. Afterwards, there was a fear of losing exemption from the Sherman Antitrust Act and the new Washington Senators were awarded to Washington, DC as an expansion team. In 1971 the new Washington Senators moved to hot, sunny Arlington, Texas and their name was changed to the Rangers for the next MLB season. The Rangers play all their home games at the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex which is located in Arlington, Texas.
The Texas Rangers have made 5 appearances in the Major League Postseason. These were all the result of winning a division championship in the following years: 1996, 1998, 1999, 2010 and 2011. Two years ago the Rangers excited the whole state of Texas when they made it past the Division Series for the very first time by winning against the Tampa Bay Rays. After defeating Tampa, they won the American League Pennant after they stomped out the Yankees in six games. When the team went onto the World Series to face the San Francisco Giants they lost in 5 games, however, they were the first team from Texas to ever get 1 win in the coveted World Series. The Rangers also clinched the 2011 American League Pennant, but were defeated by the St. Louis Cardinals after a very competitive and exciting seven game series. Every Ranger and Cardinal fan was either in attendance at the games or glued to their TV's at home.
Years ago, home ballpark attendance was a continuing issue for the Rangers because not many people came out to see the Rangers play in person. There were two factors that seemed to cause this problem of attendance. Firstly, the inconsistent performance of the Rangers and secondly temperature and humidity in the summer sometimes shoot up to 100 degrees. As a result of the temperature issue, the Rangers decided to play their games between May and September at night. This tradition is still continuing to this day. Nowadays, Rangers tickets are some of the most desired tickets because of their stellar performance over the past years. Rangers fans are great about supporting their team and take their whole family out to the ballpark.
