On April 11, 1994, The Ballpark in Arlington, now known as Globe Life Park, hosted its first Texas Rangers’ game ever. That was barely over 22 years ago.

Rangers GM says team may look to improve bullpen

The Texas Rangers have been playing good ball this season and currently have the best record in the American League.

The Smoothest Part of Ian Desmond’s Outfield Transition

Ian Desmond has, unequivocally, been a complete success for the Texas Rangers this year. He’s hitting, with a 128 wRC+, but he’s hit like that before. He’s running the bases well, but he’s run the bases well before. The third thing Desmond’s doing, though, is something he’d never done before. When he takes his position defensively, he goes to the grass instead of the...

Did young A's fan behind home plate cost Colby Lewis his perfect game?

Texas Rangers: Colby Lewis is sinking to rise up

Pick the best starting pitcher on the Texas Rangers. It has to be Cole Hamels because of his incredible value from the trade deadline and his experience of coming up big when in matters most, like in the 2008 World Series.
