Texas Rangers History

The Texas Rangers have been in the American League of MLB since 1961 when they started as the Washington Senators. The team’s time in Washington D.C. was full of losing seasons, with the 1969 season being the only winning season they had as the Senators. By the start of the 1972 baseball season, the Senators would be in their new home of Texas and renamed the Texas Rangers.

Since moving to Texas, specifically to the Globe Life Field, the Rangers have had years of success and some years that they would rather forget. It didn’t take them long in Texas to have their first winning season when they did so in the 1974 season, and by 1996 the team would win their first AL West Division title. The remainder of the 90s would be good for the Rangers, as they continued to find success winning the AL West Division title. In 2023 they had the best moment in their history, as they won their one and only World Series trophy.

Former President George W. Bush had an ownership stake in the team during the Rangers’ first division title championship. He would sell that stake in 1998, two years before his campaign for President started. The Bush family are known as Rangers fans, and they have been seen attending their games in the past.

Historical Texas Rangers Stats

The Texas Rangers have emerged as a dominant force in recent seasons, culminating in their World Series win in 2023. Here’s a look at some evergreen Texas Rangers stats that capture their current identity:

World Series Champions (2023): Highlighting their recent success, the Rangers captured the ultimate prize in 2023. This championship run showcases their ability to build a team that can compete at the highest level.

Powerhouse Offense: The Rangers are known for an offense that can erupt for big scoring nights. They consistently rank high in home runs per game, with players like Adolis García and World Series MVP Corey Seager leading the charge.

Developing Young Talent: The Rangers have a strong system for developing young talent. Players like Josh Jung and Nathaniel Lowe are recent examples who have made a significant impact at the Major League level. This focus on homegrown talent bodes well for the team’s future.

Championships Won by the Texas Rangers

The Texas Rangers have some championships under their belt, specially now that they won the World Series for the first time in 2023.

The Rangers have won the AL Pennant two times, and they have won the AL West Division title seven times. The Rangers two AL Pennants would come in 2010 and 2011. They won the AL West Division title in 1996, 1998, 1999, 2010, 2011, 2015, and 2016. The Rangers don’t have to look too far back to find success in their organization.

The Rangers do hold an in-state championship known as the Silver Boot. The Silver Boot is awarded to the series winner between the Houston Astros and the Texas Rangers, known as the Lone Star Series. The Rangers have won this in-state rivalry championship nine times since 2001.

Important Team Events

One of the most significant team events for the Rangers is their games against in-state rival, the Houston Astros.

Another rivalry that stems from their postseason matchups is with the New York Yankees. The Yankees were the team in the 90s that would be the ones that would knock the Rangers out of the postseason, keeping them from reaching the World Series several times.

Of course, the most important event in the team’s history, according to Texas Rangers stats, was when they won the World Series in 2023.

Top Players

Throughout their history, the Rangers have produced some top players on their team. Some of the best players of the past for the Rangers include outfielder Josh Hamilton, outfielder Juan Gonzalez, closer Francisco Cordero, pitcher Nolan Ryan, and infielder Michael Young. These players have all set records in the Rangers organization while with the team.

We must mention also some World Series champions like Adolis García and Corey Seager.

Top Coaches

Three managers stand out the most for people looking back at coaches from the past that were with the Rangers. The first is Johnny Oates, who managed the Rangers from 1995 to 2001, while the second is Ron Washington, who managed the team from 2007 to 2014. Both of these managers have some firsts with the team.

Oates won the AL Manager of the Year in 1996, and he helped lead the Rangers to three AL West Division titles under his management, marking the first time the Rangers would win the AL West division. Washington would be the first Rangers manager to win the AL Pennant and take the team to back-to-back World Series games. The Rangers also won the AL West Division title two times under his leadership.

Bruce Bochy, finally, became the first manager of the club to win the World Series and enter in Rangers’ history.
