The Texas Rangers are one of the biggest names in Major League Baseball, having played in the American League since 1961. They have never won the World Series, but have two American League pennants, both coiming in a two-year span (2010 and 2011). The Rangers have six West Division titles, all of which coming in the last 20 years, from 1996-2015. They are the reigning champions of the West Division, and have won three of the last six titles. The Rangers are synonymous with Major League Baseball and are renowned the world over.
Originally playing their games at RFK Stadium (1962 to 1971), they moved to Arlington Stadium until 1993 when they pitched up at Globe Life Park, as it now called. They’ve been there ever since and have enjoyed their most prolific period of success.
The Rangers’ seven appearances in the MLB postseason have all come since 1996. In 2010 The Rangers finally won the Division Series final when they defeated the Tampa Bay Rays. That victory set them on the path to a famous win over the 40-time World Series champions, The New York Yankees. Beating The Yankees in six games, The Rangers went on to their first World Series final.
They fell at the final hurdle to San Francisco Giants in five games, 4-1. In 2011 The Rangers lost to the St. Louis Cardinals in seven agonising games, once again losing in the World Series final.
