The *Texas Rangers’ are an American professional baseball team, located in Arlington, Texas. The Rangers are a member of the Western Division of the American League. StadiumFrom 1994 to the present, the Rangers have played in Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. NicknameThe “Rangers” name originates from the famous law enforcement agency, the Texas Rangers. *History’The club that became the Texas Rangers was founded in Washington, D.C. in 1961 and called the Washington Senators (not to be confused with the Washington Senators that left D.C. after 1960 and became the Minnesota Twins!). The team moved to Arlington in 1972 and became the Rangers.

The Rangers are one of four teams to have never played in a World Series, and have never won a league championship. They are also one of only two franchises to have never won a playoff series since the franchise’s inception in 1961.

*Record By Decade1972-1979The great Ted Williams coached the Rangers for their first year in Texas…but was hamstrung by the cheapness of the ownership and was unable to produce a winning season. He was replaced by Whitey Herzog in 1973, and then Billy Martin took over for two seasons. Then came Frank Luchesi for two seasons, then Pat Corrales.1980-1989After a losing season in 1980, Pat Corrales was replaced by Don Zimmer, who was able to do no better. Nor was his replacement for three seasons, Doug Rader. Bobby Valentine came in in 1996, and coached the team for four seasons in this decade, with a couple of winning seasons.1990-1999Valentine continued to coach the team until 1992. He had two winning seasons, but was let go after the losing season of 1992, to be replaced by Kevin Kennedy for two seasons, and then Johnny Oates who finished out the decade. *2000-2008’Although successful in his last two seasons of the previous decade, in 2000 and 2001 the Rangers returned to their losing ways and Oates was replaced by Jerry Narron for a single season, and then by Buck Showalter who coached the team for four years. Then, Ron Washington was named as coach, but has yet to get the Rangers to a winning season.
