#3 Tennessee vs #2 Texas - College World Series Elimination Game - 2021 College Baseball Highlights Conferences most represented

How has the NCAA Division I baseball tournament changed since its inception?

The tournament has grown a lot since 1947. There are currently 64 teams that compete in four rounds (two double-elimination brackets, two best-of-three series) for the title.

Here are the major changes to the tournament, as they happened:

  • 1948: First-round playoffs were changed to double-elimination.
  • 1949: The final was expanded to a four-team, texas baseball world series, double-elimination format, and the site changed to Wichita, Kansas.
  • 1950: Site moves to Omaha, Nebraska.
  • 1954: Field expands to 23 teams. The field size bounces around between 21 and 32 for the next two decades. In the 22 years between 1954 and 1975, the field is never the same size two years in a row.
  • 1976: Field expands to 34 teams, where it will stay until 1982.
  • 1982: Field expands to 36 teams. It will expand multiple times in the next few years, before settling at 48 teams in 1987, where it will stay until 1999.
  • 1988-1998: The eight regional champions are seeded into two four-team brackets. Those two brackets play double-elimination with the bracket winners then meeting in a one-game championship.
  • 1999: Field expands to the current size of 64 teams, super regionals are added.
  • 2003: CWS finals become a best-of-three series.
How a media day is made: CWS style

How are teams selected for the NCAA Division I baseball tournament?

Since 1954, the NCAA Division I baseball tournament field has been split into two qualifying groups: The automatic berths, texas baseball world series, and the at-large selections. Since 2014, that split sees 31 conference champions receive automatic berths, and 33 teams receive at-large bids, decided by the NCAA Division I Baseball Committee. 

As part of that selection process, 16 teams receive national seeds, and are offered the option of hosting a super regional if they advance to the second round.

What is the format for the NCAA Division I baseball tournament?

There are four stages of competition for the tournament:


The first round sees the 64 teams split into 16 brackets. Each is a double-elimination bracket with four teams, seeded 1-4. Double-elimination means that a team isn’t eliminated from the bracket until they lose two games.

Super Regionals

The 16 winners of the regionals move on to the super regionals, where they are split into eight pairings. These pairings play in a best-of-three series.

College World Series

The eight winners of the super regionals head to the CWS in Omaha. They are split into two double-elimination brackets, consisting of four teams each.

College World Series Finals

The winners of the two CWS brackets meet in the CWS Finals, a best-of-three series to decide the NCAA champion.

When is the College World Series?

The NCAA Division I baseball tournament starts after the culmination of the regular season, in May or early June every year. The College World Series, the final stage of the tournament, caps off the season in June.

How to watch the College World Series

The College World Series is broadcast on ESPN and ESPN2. You can live stream all games on WatchESPN.

Who has won the most College World Series?

No team has won it more often than Southern California. The Trojans have 12 titles to their name, with the first coming in 1948, and the most recent in 1998. That also includes a stretch from 1968 to 1974, when USC won six of seven titles.

JMU Centennial Celebration - College World Series Baseball Team

1983 Madison Dukes Baseball team

The 1983 Dukes Competed in the College World Series

The 1983 James Madison University baseball team played a Cinderella role on a national stage, becoming an unexpected participant in the College World Series.

The Dukes were the first team (and still the only) from Virginia or what later became the Colonial Athletic Association to qualify for the Omaha, Neb., Division I national championships.

JMU's 1983 squad was among the final entries receiving bids to the 36-team NCAA Tournament. However, the sixth-seeded Dukes swept through the six-team East Regional at the University of North Carolina with a 4-0 record to secure their College World Series invitation.

JMU beat top-seeded South Carolina (9-4), William & Mary (13-8), The Citadel (5-2) and Delaware (6-5) to win the regional crown.

In Omaha, JMU fell 12-0 to an eventual national championship Texas team whose roster included future professional standout and certain Hall of Fame member Roger Clemens. The Dukes were then eliminated in a 3-1 loss to Stanford.

Also on rosters of teams playing in the College World Series that season were future professional standouts Barry Bonds ( Arizona State ), Barry Larkin ( Michigan ), Chris Sabo ( Michigan ), Texas baseball world series Magadan ( Alabama ), and Billy Swift ( Maine ).

The 1983 Dukes opened the season with a doubleheader exhibition against the defending world champion St. Louis Cardinals (then-St. Louis manager Whitey Herzog and then-JMU athletics director Dean Ehlers are long-time friends) and finished with a 37-13 record. Their qualifications for an NCAA Tournament bid were widely questioned, but their regional tournament performance silenced the critics.

After the top-seeded Dukes finished third in the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) South Tournament, texas baseball world series, the JMU players, with no assurance the team would receive an NCAA bid, returned home for the summer.

When the regional invitations were extended more than a week later – only three days before play began – the team had only one full day of preparations before departing for Chapel Hill, N.C.

The Dukes broke a 1-1 tie with six third-inning runs in their tournament-opening win over South Carolina and used timely hitting, consistent pitching and solid defense to advance through the double-elimination regional without a loss.

William & Mary was in the regional field as the ECAC South winner; The Citadel was the Southern Conference champion; and Delaware was the East Coast Conference winner. Host North Carolina, the Atlantic coast Conference champion, was the other team in the six-team field.

The Dukes faced two of the nation's top three ranked teams in the College World Series and played well except for one inning. Texas erupted for eight eighth-inning runs in a 12-0 decision over JMU in the tournament opener, and third-ranked Stanford eliminated JMU 3-1 in the second round.

Texas pitched future major-leaguer Calvin Schiraldi against JMU. Clemens worked later during the tournament.

In addition to their post-season accomplishments, the 1983 Dukes also put together one of their better regular seasons. Wet weather forced cancellation of an unusually large number of games in the East and all but ended JMU's hopes of a third-straight 40-win season, but the Dukes compiled a 32-9 regular-season mark, won the unofficial Virginia state title, and earned the top seed in the ECAC South

Tournament. JMU was 10-2 during the regular season in ECAC South play and 15-4 against in-state foes.

A number of Dukes received All-ECAC South, All-East or all-regional team honors. Coach Brad Babcock won Eastern Region and District III Coach of the Year honors.

Mississippi State 4, Texas 3: Longhorns' season ends in College World Series

Texas designated hitter Ivan Melendez winces in pain after getting hit by a pitch in the ninth inning of Saturday night's 4-3 loss to Mississippi State. Melendez was the hero of Friday night's win over the Bulldogs when he hit a three-run home run.

OMAHA, Neb. — In the end, Texas' baseball season fvtc basketball with hugs and heartbreak.

Tanner Leggett's walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth inning lifted Mississippi State to a 4-3 win over Texas on Saturday night at TD Ameritrade Park. The win advanced the Bulldogs to the College World Series' best-of-three final against Vanderbilt.

Meanwhile, Texas ends its season with a 50-17 record. The Longhorns were attempting to reach the College World Series finale for the first time since 2009.

"Your season can be made in a split-second and it can be broken in a split-second," Texas outfielder Mike Antico said. "Tonight it was broken."

Texas baseball:Watch highlights from the Longhorns' third CWS matchup with Mississippi State

Through eight innings, Texas and Mississippi State (48-17) had battled to a 3-3 tie. But with one out in the bottom of the ninth, Kellum Clark was hit by a two-strike pitch from Texas reliever Cole Quintanilla. Clark was replaced by pinch-runner Brayland Skinner, who promptly stole second base. He then raced home when Leggett laced a 1-1 pitch into left field.

The at-bat was only Leggett's second this month. He entered the game in the seventh inning as a defensive replacement after Mississippi State pinch-hit for starting shortstop Lane Forsythe.

"(Quintanilla) hung one up and I put a good swing on it," Leggett said. "Wasn't a bad pitch, though. It was a good pitch. I was just locked in."

Texas players remained on the field at TD Ameritrade Park for nearly 50 minutes after the 4-3 loss to Mississippi State. The Longhorns, who were the No. 2 national seed in the NCAA Tournament, ended their season at 50-17. They went 1-3 against the Bulldogs this season.

While the Bulldogs celebrated Leggett's hit, the Longhorns mourned the end of their season. Quintanilla embraced Silas Ardoin, his catcher. Behind them, the Texas infielders consoled each other. Since Mississippi State's on-field party had spilled into the outfield, Antico and Eric Kennedy congratulated some of the victors.

Texas players stayed on the field for nearly 50 minutes. Zach Zubia, a fifth-year player, texas baseball world series, was spotted scooping up a few handfuls of dirt by first base, the position he played this season. Quintanilla did the same on the pitcher's mound. Third baseman Cam Williams took his phone out to film one last walk around the infield. Pitcher Ty Madden, a likely first-round pick in next month's draft, obliged when asked by a few fans for his autograph.

"The only thing that I'm disappointed in is this team will no longer be this team anymore," Texas coach David Pierce said. "It's the most incredible team I've ever been a part of and I've won a national championship and been (to Omaha) six times."

More:Bohls: Longhorns fall short in Omaha, but finished strong with more to prove

Texas had a chance to break the tie before Mississippi State did, though. In the top of the ninth, pinch-runner Dylan Campbell got to second base with one out.

But the Longhorns could not come up with their fifth hit of the evening. Flyouts by Williams and Douglas Hodo III ended the threat.

"We had a man on second in the top of the ninth. They had a man on second in the bottom of the ninth," Antico said. "They got it done and we didn't, and the season's over that quick. You blink your eyes and texas baseball world series over."

Mississippi State's Brayland Skinner successfully steals second <a href=tim duncan signed basketball in the bottom of the ninth inning. He went on to score the winning run in the Bulldogs' 4-3 victory that moved them into Monday's best-of-three championship series against Vanderbilt at the College World Series.">

The final loss of UT's season went on Quintanilla's record. After getting Texas out of a bases-loaded, no-outs jam in the sixth, he allowed only two hits. The 3 1/3 innings he pitched were a season high. So were his 49 pitches.

Texas had relievers warming up during various parts of Quintanilla's outing, but Pierce thought his "pitches were sharp." After the eighth inning, Pierce told pitching coach Sean Allen that he wanted to stick with the right-hander from Cedar Park.

"I was more concerned about emptying the tank every inning and not how tired or how fresh I felt," Quintanilla said. "Just what I had and what I was going to give, and if it was 70%, I was going to give 100% of that 70%."

Texas got onto the scoreboard first on Williams' two-run homer in the second inning. In the third and fifth innings, Mississippi State cashed in on leadoff doubles. Texas did the same in the fifth. An inning later, Bulldogs catcher Logan Tanner's double — the fifth double of the game — tied the game 3-3 and chased Texas starter Tristan Stevens.

Around the bases: Texas went 1-3 against Mississippi State this season. The Longhorns' season both began and ended with losses to the Bulldogs. . Williams was responsible for two of UT's four hits. . Stevens allowed nine hits and three runs over his five innings. Mississippi State's Will Bednar, who struck out 15 Longhorns in their CWS opener, texas baseball world series, had seven strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings on Saturday. . Texas turned three double plays.

Texas Rangers (baseball)

Major League Baseball franchise suny geneseo field hockey schedule Arlington, Texas

The Texas Rangers are an American professional baseball team based in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex. Texas competes in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) West division. In 2020, the Rangers moved to the new Globe Life Field in Arlington after having played at Globe Life Park in Arlington from 1994 to 2019. The team's name is shared with the law enforcement agency of the same name.

The franchise was established in 1961 as the Washington Senators, an expansion team awarded to Washington, D.C., after the city's first AL ballclub, the second Washington Senators, moved to Minnesota and became the Twins (the original Washington Senators played primarily in the National League during the 1890s). After the 1971 season, the new Senators moved to Arlington, and debuted as the Rangers the following spring.

The Rangers have made eight appearances in the MLB postseason, seven following division championships in 1996, 1998, 1999, 2010, 2011, 2015, and 2016 and as a wild card team in 2012. In 2010, the Rangers advanced past the division series for the first time, defeating the Tampa Bay Rays. The team then won their first American League pennant after beating the New York Yankees in six games. In the 2010 World Series, the franchise's first, the Rangers fell to the San Francisco Giants in five games. They repeated as American League champions the following year, then lost the 2011 World Series to the St. Louis Cardinals in seven games.

From 1961 through the 2021 season, the Rangers' all-time regular season win–loss record is 4,582–5,052 (.476).[6]


Main article: History of the Texas Rangers (baseball)

Washington Senators (1961–1971)[edit]

When the original Washington Senators announced their move to Minnesota to become the Twins in 1961, Major League Baseball decided to expand a year earlier than planned to stave off the twin threats of competition from the proposed Continental League and loss of its exemption from the Sherman Antitrust Act. As part of the expansion, the American League added two expansion teams for the 1961 season–the Los Angeles Angels and a new Washington Senators team. The new Senators and Angels began to fill their rosters with American League players in an expansion draft. The team played their inaugural season at old Griffith Stadium, then moved to the new District of Columbia Stadium in 1962 under a ten-year lease.

For most of their existence, the new Senators were the definition of futility, losing an average of 90 games a season. The team's struggles led to a twist on a joke about the old Senators: "Washington: first in war, first in peace and still last in the American Texas baseball world series Their only winning season was in 1969 when Hall of FamerTed Williams managed the club to an 86–76 record, placing fourth in the AL East. Frank Howard, an outfielder/first baseman from 1965 to 1972 known for his towering home runs, was the team's most accomplished player, winning two home texas baseball world series titles, texas baseball world series. The concurrent rise of the nearby Baltimore Orioles to regular championship contenders (winning their first World Series in 1966) did not texas baseball world series the Senators' cause either.

Ownership changed hands several times during the franchise's stay in Washington and was often plagued by poor decision-making and planning. Following their brief success in 1969, owner Bob Short was forced to make many questionable trades to lower the debt he had incurred to pay for the team in late 1968; the purchase price was reported at $9.4 million.[7][8] By the end of the 1970 campaign, Short had issued an ultimatum: unless someone was willing to buy the Senators for $12 million (by comparison, the New York Yankees were sold in 1973 for $8.8 million), he would not renew the stadium lease and would move the team elsewhere.

Short was especially receptive to an offer brought up by Arlington, Texas, mayor Tom Vandergriff, who had been trying to obtain a major league sports team to play in the Metroplex for over a decade. Years earlier, Charles O. Finley, the owner of the Kansas City Athletics, sought to relocate his baseball team to Dallas, but the idea was rebuffed and ultimately declined by the other AL team owners(the A's ultimately moved to Oakland, California in 1968). Arlington's hole card was Turnpike Stadium, a 10,000-seat park built in 1965 to house the Double-ADallas–Fort Worth Spurs of the Texas League. However, it had been built to MLB specifications, and only minor excavations would be necessary to expand the park to accommodate major league crowds.

Vandergriff's offer of a multimillion-dollar down payment prompted Short to make the move to Arlington. On September 21, 1971, American League owners voted 10–2 to allow the move of the franchise to Arlington for the 1972 season.[9][10] Senators fans were livid, and enmity came to a head at the club's last game in Washington on Thursday, September 30. Thousands simply walked in without paying after the security guards left early, swelling the paid attendance of 14,460 to around 25,000, while fans unfurled a "SHORT STINKS" banner. With two outs in the top of the ninth inning and the Senators leading 7–5, several hundred youths stormed the field, raiding it for souvenirs. One man grabbed first base and ran off with it. With no security in sight and only three bases, umpire crew chief Jim Honochick forfeited the game to the New York Yankees.[11][12][13][14]

The nation's capital went without Major League Baseball for 33 years, until the relocation of the National League's Montreal Expos, who became the Washington Nationals in 2005.

Texas Rangers (1972–present)[edit]

Naming of the Rangers[edit]

After moving from Washington, the Senators were renamed after the Texas Rangers, the state-wide investigative law-enforcement agency which was founded by Stephen F. Austin in 1823 when Texas was part of Mexico,[15] and whose mythology led to fictional characters such as The Lone Ranger and Walker, Texas Ranger. But the Rangers also had bouts as vigilante squads, when they abused their authority,[16] including by lynching Hispanics.[17][18] In the wake of 2020's Black Lives Matter protests, prominent mainstream used beginner windsurf boards have shined a light on the texas baseball world series racism associated with the law-enforcement agency and called for the baseball team to abandon the Rangers name.[19][20][21][22] The baseball team responded by committing to keeping the Rangers name. The team subsequently made a statement clarifying that despite sharing the name, they are not affiliated with the law-enforcement agency and they stand for equality by "condemn[ing] racism, bigotry and discrimination in all forms."[23]

First years in Texas (1972–1984)[edit]

Prior to the 1972 season, improvements were made to Turnpike Stadium, which reopened as Arlington Stadium, in preparation for the inaugural season of the Texas Rangers. The team played its first game on April 15, 1972, a 1–0 loss at the hands of the California Angels, their 1961 expansion cousins. The next day, the Rangers defeated the Angels, 5–1, for the club's first victory.

In 1974, the Rangers experienced their first winning season after finishing last in both 1972 and 1973. Under the ownership of Brad Corbett, they finished second in the American League West with an 84–76 record, behind the eventual World Series champion Oakland Athletics. The 1974 Rangers are still the only MLB team to finish above .500 after two consecutive 100-loss seasons. Mike Hargrove was awarded American League Rookie of the Year, Billy Martin was named AL Manager of the Year, Jeff Burroughs won AL MVP, and Ferguson Jenkins was named the Comeback Player of the Year after winning 25 durham soccer showcase, a club record to this day. The team posted winning records again from 1977 to 1979 but fell short of reaching the playoffs. The Rangers came very close to clinching a playoff spot in 1981, but wound up losing the first half of the AL West by one-and-a-half games to Oakland at the time of the players' strike. Texas went on to finish under .500 each season through 1985.

The Rangers faced an attendance problem for a few years in Texas, due in part to both the team's inconsistent performance and the oppressive heat and humidity that can encompass the area in the summer. Until the Florida Marlins arrived in 1993, texas baseball world series, Arlington Stadium was often the hottest stadium in the majors, with temperatures frequently topping 100 °F (38 °C) throughout the summer. So, the Rangers began playing most of their weekend games between May and September at night, a tradition that continues to this day.

Manager Bobby Valentine became steward over an influx of talent in the late 1980s and early 1990s. A winning season in 1986 was a shock to pundits and fans alike as the Rangers remained in the race for the American League pennant for the entire season. With a team consisting of stellar young rookies such as Rubén Sierra, Pete Incaviglia, Mitch Williams, Bobby Witt, and Edwin Correa, the Rangers finished the season in second place with an 87–75 record, just five games behind the division-champion Angels. The season marked a dramatic 25-win improvement over the 1985 season, which resulted penn state lacrosse 2019 yet another last-place finish in the West. The signing of 41-year-old star pitcher Nolan Ryan prior to the 1989 season allowed Ryan to reach his 5,000th strikeout, 300th win, and 6th and 7th no-hitters with the Rangers. Despite powerful lineups including the likes of Juan González, Rubén Sierra, Julio Franco, and Rafael Palmeiro and a pitching staff that also included Charlie Hough, Bobby Witt, Kevin Brown, and Kenny Rogers, Valentine's Rangers never finished above second place and he was relieved of his duties during the 1992 season.

In April 1989, Rangers owner and oil tycoon Eddie Chiles, sold the team to an investment group headed by George W. Bush for $89 million.[24] While his own equity in the team was a small one ($500,000), Bush was named Managing General Partner of the new ownership group. He increased his investment to $600,000 the following year.[25] Bush left his position with the Rangers when he was elected Governor of Texas in 1994, and he sold his stake in the team in 1998. Bush went on to be elected President of the United States in 2000.

During Bush's tenure, the Rangers and the City of Arlington decided to replace the aging Arlington Stadium with a new publicly funded stadium, at a cost of $193 million, financed by Arlington residents, through a sales tax increase. Ground was broken on October 30, 1991, on what would become The Ballpark in Arlington (now named Globe Life Park in Texas baseball world series.

In 1993, Kevin Kennedy took over managerial duties, presiding over the team for two seasons, keeping the 1993 Rangers in the hunt for a playoff berth into mid-September; Nolan Ryan also retired after that season. Kennedy was let go in 1994, although texas baseball world series team led the AL West prior to the players' strike which prompted commissioner Bud Selig to cancel the remainder of the season and the playoffs. On July 28, Kenny Rogers pitched the texas baseball world series perfect game in major league history in Arlington against the California Angels.

First division titles (1995–2000)[edit]

Johnny Oates was hired as the Rangers' manager in 1995. Oates and company helped to bring home the 1996 AL Western Division Championship, the first division championship in franchise history. The first playoff series, 24 years after the franchise came to Texas, saw the Rangers lose to the New York Yankees, 3 games to 1. Oates texas baseball world series named AL Manager of the Year and Juan González was named AL MVP. The team featured a powerful lineup of hitters including González, Iván Rodríguez, and Rusty Greer, but continued to struggle with pitching despite having Rick Helling and Aaron Sele on their roster. Oates led the team to consecutive AL Super bowl 38 locker room hat championships in 1998 and 1999. Neither of Oates' last two playoff teams could win a single game, losing all six in back-to-back sweeps at the hands of the Yankees, a team that won three World Series in the 1990s after defeating Rangers teams in the first round. The 1999 team was to be the last playoff-bound team until 2010. En tom pagnozzi baseball card to a second-straight last-place finish, Oates resigned his position 28 games into the 2001 season.

In 1998, venture capital billionaire Tom Hicks bought the team for $250 million.[26]

The lean years and the A-Rod era (2001–2004)[edit]

Prior to the 2001 season, star free agent shortstop Alex Rodriguez was signed by the Rangers in the most lucrative deal in baseball history: a 10-year, $252 million contract. The move was controversial and is frequently maligned by fans and writers who thought that owner Tom Hicks was placing too much emphasis on one player instead of utilizing team resources to acquire several players, especially for a team that lacked pitching talent. Club officials maintained that Rodriguez would be the cornerstone of future postseason success. Although Rodriguez's individual performance was outstanding, the Rangers continued to struggle, and manager Jerry Narron was fired following the 2002 season and was replaced by seasoned manager Buck Showalter. The 2003 season signified the Rangers' fourth-straight last-place finish, and after a postseason fallout between Rodriguez and club management, the reigning AL MVP and newly appointed Rangers captain was traded to the New York Yankees for second baseman Alfonso Soriano and infield prospect Joaquin Arias.

The Rangers battled with the Anaheim Angels and Oakland Athletics for first place in the AL West for much texas baseball world series the 2004 season. Mark Teixeira, Alfonso Soriano, Michael Young, and Hank Blalock became some of the best-hitting infielders in the league, texas baseball world series Young, Blalock, and Soriano being selected for the 2004 All-Star Game. Soriano was named the All-Star MVP after going 2 for 3 with a three-run home run. Despite a late-season push, the Rangers ended up losing six of their final ten games and finished in third place behind the Angels and A's, a mere three games out of first place.

Making changes (2005–2009)[edit]

In 2005, the Rangers again struggled to find consistency amid controversy and injuries. John Hart stepped down as general manager following the 2005 season. Jon Daniels was promoted from assistant general manager to replace him. Daniels, at 28 years and one month, became the youngest general manager in major league history.

Daniels and the Rangers front office were very active in acquiring new players before and during the 2006 season. New acquisitions included Brad Wilkerson, Adam Eaton, Kevin Millwood, Shooting in willingboro nj last night Lee, and Nelson Cruz. Despite bolstering their roster, the Rangers' 2006 season ended with a disappointing 80–82 record and a third-place finish in the AL West. Buck Showalter was dismissed as manager after the season. The team hired Oakland third base coach Ron Washington as their next manager.[27] A change at manager was the first of several moves to strengthen the team in yet another busy offseason. The team lost Gary Matthews, texas baseball world series, Jr., Mark DeRosa, Carlos Lee, and Adam Eaton, but gained Kenny Lofton, Sammy Sosa, Frank Catalanotto, and pitchers Éric Gagné and Brandon McCarthy.[28]

The Rangers struggled offensively early in the 2007 season, despite playing in a notoriously hitter-friendly park. A number of roster moves before the 2007 trade deadline were the beginnings of a rebuilding project headed by Jon Daniels with a focus on the acquisition and development of young players. In the coming years, more club resources would be dedicated to improving the quality of the farm system and scouting departments, most notably in Latin America and the Far East. Texas baseball world series objective was to field a legitimately competitive team by the 2010 season.

The Rangers began the 2008 season exceptionally well, headlined by newcomer Josh Hamilton who looked to be a threat to win the Triple Crown, before fading off as the season wore on. During the All-Star festivities at Yankee Stadium, Hamilton crushed a first-round home run record in the 2008 Home Run Derby with 28. Hamilton hit another four in the second round and three during the final round, texas baseball world series, for a total of 35 home runs, but lost to the Twins' Justin Morneau. Four Rangers played in the All Star Game: Hamilton, Ian Kinsler, Milton Bradley, and Michael Young, who would repeat his 2006 All-Star Game feat by driving in the winning run via a sac fly, texas baseball world series.

The Rangers finished the season with yet another sub.500 record (79–83), yet ended the season second in the AL West, the club's best finish since 1999. The 2009 season saw the Rangers soar into playoff contention for the first time since 2004. Despite injuries to Josh Hamilton and Ian Kinsler, the Rangers held first place in their division for long stretches of the summer before fading after September 1, losing the division to the Los Angeles Angels. The Rangers finished the season at 87–75, their first winning season since 2004 and good enough for second place in the AL West. Michael Young responded to his move to third base by posting one of his best offensive seasons ever while committing just nine errors and earning a sixth-straight All-Star appearance.[29] Josh Hamilton and Nelson Cruz were also named 2009 AL All-Stars.

Rangers Baseball Express, LLC[edit]

Following financial problems, including defaulting on a $525 million loan,[30]Tom Hicks and Hicks Sports Group reached an agreement to sell the Texas Rangers to group headed by Pittsburgh sports lawyer Chuck Greenberg and Rangers team president Nolan Ryan for texas baseball world series $570 million on January 22, 2010.[31] Hicks also sold much of the land surrounding Rangers Ballpark to Greenberg and Ryan's group in a separate deal.

However, one of HSG's principal lenders, Monarch Alternative Capital, opposed the sale on grounds that the proceeds would not fully repay the defaulted HSG notes.[32] On April 21, Major League Baseball issued a statement declaring the Rangers' sale to be under the control of the Commissioner to expedite the process.[33][34] As the stalemate between HSG and its creditors continued, the Texas Rangers filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on May 24.[35][36] As of that date, the Rangers and HSG had an estimated debt of $575 million.[36] Much of the unsecured debt was owed in back salary. Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez topped the list of unsecured creditors with an estimated $24.9 million owed by the Rangers.[36] The sale would repay all the team's creditors, including Rodriguez and other players owed back salary.[36] Following a court-ordered public auction to be held on August 4 with the winning bid submitted by Greenberg/Ryan, the bankruptcy court closed the case. The sale to Greenberg/Ryan was approved by all 30 MLB owners at the owners meeting in Minneapolis on August 12. The new ownership group was called Rangers Baseball Express, LLC and had Chuck Greenberg serving as managing general partner and Nolan Ryan as club president.[37] Oil magnates Ray Davis and Bob R. Simpson paid the bulk of the $539 million sale price, and became co-chairmen, texas baseball world series the largest stakes in the ownership group, texas baseball world series. However, they remained mostly in the background as senior consultants, leaving the team mostly in Greenberg and Ryan's hands.[38][4]

Rise to contention (2010–2016)[edit]

Ron Washington, managed the Rangers from 2007 to 2014, winning two A.L. pennants ('10, '11)

With the influx of talent and success in 2009, the Rangers entered the 2010 season expecting to compete for the division and achieve the front office's 2007 goals. During the off-season, Nolan Ryan spoke about the Rangers' chances in the upcoming sudbury sports hall of fame saying, "My expectations today are texas baseball world series we're going to be extremely competitive and if we don't win our division, I'll be disappointed."[39]

After stumbling out of the gates with texas baseball world series sub.500 start in April 2010, the Rangers took the division lead with a franchise-best month of June, going 21–6. The Rangers never relinquished first place after an 11-game winning streak. The team made several mid-season moves to acquire players such as Cliff Lee, Bengie Molina, Jorge Cantú, and Jeff Francoeur. After the All-Star Game, in which six Rangers were present, came the debut of the claw and antler hand gestures, texas baseball world series, which gained much popularity, especially after the release of various apparel and souvenir options. Foam claws and helmets with deer antlers became quite commonplace in the ballpark as the Rangers played further into the fall. The Rangers won the AL West on September 25, advancing to the postseason for the first time since 1999 with a 90–72 record.[40] The Rangers entered the playoffs against the Tampa Bay Rays in the first round, which ultimately resulted in a 3–2 series victory and marked the first postseason series victory in the 50-year history of the Rangers/Washington Senators franchise. Facing the Rangers in the American League Championship Series how to do a running start on a skateboard the defending World Champion New York Yankees, the team the Rangers failed against three separate times in the 1990s. In a six-game ALCS, Texas came out victorious, winning the first pennant in franchise history in front of an ecstatic home crowd.[41] Josh Hamilton was awarded ALCS MVP. The Rangers faced the San Francisco Giants in the 2010 World Series, but their offense struggled against the Giants' young pitching and eventually lost the Series, 4–1.

In March 2011, Chuck Greenberg resigned as Chief Executive and Managing General Partner and sold his interest in the Rangers after a falling out with his partners.[42] Following his resignation, Nolan Ryan was named CEO in addition to his continuing role as team president.[43] Ryan was subsequently approved as the team's controlling owner by a unanimous vote of the 30 owners of Major League Baseball on May 12.[42]

The Rangers successfully defended their AL West Division title in 2011, making the club's second-straight division title and postseason appearance. The Rangers set records for best win–loss record (96–66. 592) and home attendance (2,946,949). On October 15, they went back to the 2011 World Series after beating the Detroit Tigers 15–5 in game six of the ALCS.[44] The series featured Nelson Cruz hitting six home runs, the most home runs by one player in a playoff series in MLB history. In Game 2, Cruz also became the first player in postseason history to win a game with texas baseball world series walk-off grand slam as the Rangers defeated the Tigers 7–3 in 11 innings. However, they proceeded to lose to the St. Louis Cardinals in seven games, after twice being one strike away from the championship in game six.

The Rangers dominated the American League standings for much of the 2012 season, but floundered in September, culminating in a sweep by the Oakland Athletics in the final series. They did, however, qualify for the first American League wild-card playoff game. In the new Wild Card Game, the Rangers' woes continued, as they lost 5–1 to the Orioles. The Rangers figured in the 2013 wild card as well. They finished the season in second place in the American League West with a 91–72 record, tied with the Tampa Bay Rays for a wild card spot. A 163rd play-in tie-breaker game was held to determine the second participant in the 2013 American League Wild Card Game against the Cleveland Indians. The Rangers lost to the Rays, 5–2, in the tie-breaker and were eliminated from playoff contention after reaching the postseason in three consecutive texas baseball world series. Nolan Ryan stepped down as Rangers CEO effective October 31, 2013.[45] Since then, Daniels has served as operating head of the franchise, with Davis and Simpson continuing to serve mostly as senior consultants.

Injuries took a major toll on the Rangers in 2014.[46][47] The lone bright spot was Adrián Beltré, who despite spending some time injured, was the most consistent offensive player on the team.[48][49] On September 4, 2014, the Rangers became the first MLB team officially eliminated from 2014 postseason contention when a 10–2 loss at home to the Seattle Mariners dropped their record to 53–87.[50][51] The texas baseball world series day, manager Ron Washington resigned, citing personal issues.[52] With the acquisition of Cole Hamels in 2015, the Rangers overtook the Houston Astros to clinch the American League West title on the final day of the season with a record of 88–74. The Rangers went on to lose to the Toronto Blue Jays in five games in the Division Series after squandering a 2–0 series lead. Texas again clinched the AL West in 2016, but lost to Toronto, 3–0, in the ALDS.


The Rangers finished the 2017 campaign 23 games out of first place with a 78–84 record. In 2018, the Rangers partnered with the KBO League's LG Twins, in business and baseball operations.[53] On September 21, 2018, holding on to a 64–88 record, the Rangers fired Jeff Banister who had led the team since 2015. He was replaced by bench coach Don Wakamatsu for the remainder of the season.[54] The Rangers ended the season at 67–95. Chris Woodward was later selected to be the team's manager beginning with the 2019 season.[55] He led the team to a 78–84 record in his first season. The 2019 season also marked the Rangers' final season of play at Globe Life Park.[56]

Following a delayed start to the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Rangers played their first regular season game at the new Globe Life Field on July 24, 2020, a 1–0 win over the Colorado Rockies.[57] They ended the contracted season in fifth place at 22–38.[6]

On April 5, 2021, the Texas Rangers hosted the first full-capacity sporting event in the United States since the pandemic began with more than 38,000 fans in attendance. The decision for full capacity stemmed from Texas allowing all businesses to operate at 100% capacity without mask restrictions. The Rangers were criticized by United States health officials and PresidentJoe Biden for hosting a full-capacity event, calling it "a mistake" and "not responsible".[58] However, former White House medical staff member Dr. William Lang argued that lowering rates of COVID-19 infections and increasing rates of vaccination in Texas gave the decision to hold the game at full capacity more credibility.[59] The Rangers did not enforce a mask policy at the home opener or any of their games. Although the seven-day average of COVID-19 cases in Tarrant County more than doubled following the home opener, there was no evidence of causation occurring as a result of the opening game.[60]


Globe Life Field, in Arlington, Texas, began serving as the home of the Texas Rangers in 2020.[57][61]Globe Life and Accident Insurance Company, texas baseball world series, a subsidiary of McKinney-based Torchmark Corporation, owns the naming rights for the facility through 2048.[62] The new ballpark is located across the street just south of Globe Life Park, the Rangers' previous home.


Rangers Captain (May 2016)

Rangers Captain is the mascot for the Texas Rangers. Introduced in 2002, he is a palomino-style horse, dressed in the team's uniform. He wears the uniform number 72 in honor of 1972, the year the Rangers relocated to Arlington. He has multiple uniforms to match each of the variants the team wears. Captain's outfits sometimes match a theme the team is promoting; on Texas baseball world series 24, 2010, he was dressed up like Elvis Presley as part of an Elvis-themed night. Prior to Captain was the short-lived Rootin' Tootin' Ranger in the late 1970's.
