  • Texas Rangers (1972–present)

* – In 1994, a players' strike wiped out the last eight weeks of the season and all post-season. Texas was in first place by two games in the West Division when play was stopped. No official titles were awarded in 1994.

The Texas Rangers are a professional baseball team in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, based in Arlington, Texas. The Rangers are a member of the Western Division of Major League Baseball's American League, and are the reigning A.L. Western Division and A.L. Champions. From 1994 to the present, the Rangers have played in Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, located in Arlington, Texas. The team's name is borrowed from the famous law enforcement agency of the same name.

The franchise originated in 1961 as the Washington Senators, an expansion team awarded to Washington, D.C. after the city's first ballclub, the original Washington Senators, relocated to Minnesota and became the Twins. After the 1971 season, the new Senators moved to Arlington, Texas and debuted as the Rangers the following spring.

The Texas Rangers Baseball Club has made four appearances in the MLB postseason, all following division championships in 1996, 1998, 1999, and 2010. In 2010, the Rangers advanced past the Division Series for the first time in franchise history, defeating the Tampa Bay Rays. Texas then brought home their first American League Pennant after besting the New York Yankees in 6 games. In the 2010 World Series, the franchise's first, the Rangers fell to the San Francisco Giants.
