Texas Rangers The Origin And History

The club was founded in 1961 in Washington D.C. and was originally known as the
Washington Senators. The team then moved to Arlington in 1972 and came to be
known as the Rangers. Like the other three teams; Tampa Bay Ray, Washington
Nationals and Seattle Mariners, the Texas Rangers has also not played in the World
series yet, since they have never won a league championship.

The team played its first game in April 1972, but lost the game to the California
Angels. After the first season, Whitey Herzog took over as the new manager from Ted
Williams but was replaced by Billy Martin in 1973. In 1974, the Rangers were the
only MLB team to finish over .500 after a two back-to back 100-loss seasons. In the
same year, Billy Martin was named the Manager of the Year, Mike Hargrove was
named the AL Rookie of the Year, Jeff Burroughs was named the AL Most Valuable
Player and Ferguson Jenkins was named the Comeback Player of the year.

The team had excellent performances in the year 1977-79, but after 1981 there were
no winnings for another five seasons. Also, during this period, the Rangers faced
attendance problems leading to a sharp fall in the Texas Rangers baseball tickets sale.
The year 1986 saw the beginning of winnings with the help of rookies like Ruben
Sierra and Pete Incaviglia. Finally, the team saw success in the 1990s. In 1995, the
Rangers won the game against the Yankees, which was their first and till date, the
only play-off victory owing to powerful hitters with Ivn Rodrguez, Will Clark, Mark
McLemore, Dean Palmer, Rusty Greer, Juan Gonzlez and Mickey Tettleton.

In the year 1999, Nolan Ryan became the first player of the Rangers to have been
elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame. The Rangers struggled through 2002 during
which the teams manager Jerry Narron was fired following the season and was
replaced by a seasoned manager, Buck Showalter. During 2004, they played against
the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and Oakland Athletics and finished at the third
place behind the Angels and the As. The team fought for consistency in the year 2005.
The following year also landed them with a not-so-impressive 80-82 record and they
finished third in the American League West.
