The Franchise was founded in 1961 as the Washington Senators, which was the second incarnation of the Senators after the first one moved to Minnesota. The Senators only lasted ten years in Washington and are one of the most dismal franchises in all of MLB history. They averaged 90 losses a season for an entire decade, and in 1972 the team was sold to Arlington Mayor Tom Vandergriff.

The Rangers played in Arlington Stadium from 1972 to 1993. While the first two seasons featured 100-losses, it didn’t take long for the Rangers to field a winning team; in 1974 they finished second in the AL West with an 84-76 record. The team would continue to post winning records, but never enough to qualify for the playoffs. The closest they came was in 1981 when they lost the AL West by one and a half games. Following that season, the Rangers finished under .500 every year through 1985.

In 1996, The Rangers finally won a Division Championship, twenty-four years after having moved to Texas. They lost to the Yankees, 3 games to 1. Rangers outfielder Juan Gonzalez was named AL MVP that year. They made it back to the ALDS in 1998 and 1999 but lost both those years as well.

The team would not return to prominence again until 2010 when they won their division and beat the Tampa Bay Rays in the first round of the playoffs, marking the first win in the 50-year history of the franchise. They then went on to face the Yankees in the ALCS, which they also won, giving the club its first pennant. In the following World Series, the Rangers lost to the San Francisco Giants 4-1.

The next year the Rangers returned to the World Series after posting a 96-66 record during the regular season and beating the Detroit Tigers in six games at the ALCS. That win put them up against the underdog St Louis Cardinals, who beat them in seven games.

Famous players

Two names that stick out on the Rangers Alumni list are Alex Rodriguez and Nolan Ryan. Although neither was with the club during a winning spell, their names are in the record books; Rodriguez owns the Home run record with 57 in 2002. Ryan struck out 301 batters in 1989. Ryan’s number 34 is retired.

Also retired are catcher Ivan Rodriguez and 3B Adrian Beltre. Beltre was a prominent part of the 2010 and 2011 teams that made it to the World Series. Ivan Rodriguez was the youngest player ever to catch for the Rangers at age 19 in 1991. He threw out 48% of base stealers through 2006. He was also a 13-time gold glove winner and a 14-time all-star.
