History

The Texas Rangers are United States professional baseball franchise based in Arlington, Texas, located in the Dallas, Fort Worth metroplex. The Rangers team currently competes in MLB as a member of the American League West division. Since 1994, the Texas Rangers have played in the Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas. The clubs's name is borrowed from the famous law enforcement agency with the same name. The franchise was founded in 1961 as the Washington Senators, an expansion team awarded to Washington, D.C., after the city's first American League baseball club, the second Washington Senators, moved to Minnesota and became the Twins (the original Washington Senators played primarily in the National League during the 1890s). After the 1971 season, the new Senators moved to Arlington and debuted as the Rangers the following spring. The Texas Rangers has made 8 appearances in the MLB postseason, 7 following division championships in 1996, 1998, 1999, 2010, 2011, 2015, and 2016 and as a wild card team in 2012. In 2010, the Rangers advanced past the Division Series for the first time, defeating the Tampa Bay Rays. Rangers then brought home their 1st American League pennant after beating the New York Yankees in six games. In the 2010 World Series, the teams's first, the Texas Rangers fell to the San Francisco Giants in five games. They repeated as American League champions the following year, then lost the 2011 World Series to the St. Louis Cardinals in seven games.
