Texas Rangers is a baseball team based in Arlington, Texas. Its name was taken from the real Texas rangers – the famous force team know all over the globe. The club was created in 1961, and its original name was the Washington Senators.
The first season was not really successful for the Senators. They ether got the last place or lost. In their first 4 seasons, they lost about a hundred games. Almost nothing changes even after Frank Howard, the slugger, joined the team in 1965. 1968 was the critical year. After they finished las for three times in a row, the team hired Ted Williams as their manager. That was the first time for Williams to deal with a baseball team. He guided them to the first victory, but later they continued losing again. The years of unregulated training and bad attendance did not go in vain. In 1971, the team’s owners sold in to Arlington.
In Arlington, the team got its new name which brought a little more luck. But not too much; again they lost another hundred games, and had to cope with their best manager retirement. Williams was substituted by Billy Martin in 1973 who helped them to get through that year’s season. After the pitcher Fergie Jenkins joined, Texas Rangers flew up winning 84 games and getting the 2nd place in the division.
The beginning of the 1980s was not really good. The Texas Rangers baseball team lost 5 out of 6 seasons. New players entered the club and Nolan Ryan was one of them. He stayed in the team from 1989 till 1993. 1989 was also an important year because the Texas Rangers were sold to one of the investment groups. There they met George Bush, the US president-to-be, who worked as their managing general partner for the next five years.
The 1990s were a much better decade for the Texas Rangers. New strong players came in the team, and in 4 years they managed to get 3 American League titles. In 2001, Alex Rodriguez signed for the next ten years. He contributed to it that Texas Rangers games became more interesting to watch.
In 2015, it was announced that the club's owner Thomas Heaks wanted to sell the team. The Rangers' value at that time was estimated as approximately 300 million dollars. Heaks is known to be a careful and far-sighted businessman, so his decision is going to be well thought over and properly fulfilled.
