Development Team

The teams behind Texas Live!

The Texas Rangers

The Texas Rangers won the American League West Division in 2015, the fourth time in the last six years that the team had advanced to postseason play. In that span (2010-15), the Rangers have won 525 regular season games, fifth most among the 30 major league teams. The franchise enters its 45th year in Arlington in 2016 since moving from Washington, D.C. after the 1971 season. After playing its games at Arlington Stadium from 1972-93, the club moved to The Ballpark in Arlington, which was built as a public-private partnership between the Rangers and the City of Arlington. Changing its name to Globe Life Park in Arlington in February 2014, the facility has hosted a pair of World Series, the 1995 All-Star Game, and more than 57 million fans in its 22-year history. Rangers Baseball Express LLC became the sixth owner in Rangers history when it completed purchase of the club on August 12, 2010. Ray C. Davis and Bob R. Simpson serve as Co-Chairman of the Board of Directors of the investor group.
