The team then moved to Arlington in 1972 and came to be known as the Rangers. Like the other three teams; Tampa Bay Ray, Washington Nationals and Seattle Mariners, the Texas Rangers has also not played in the World series yet, since they have never won a league championship.

The team played its first game in April 1972, but lost the game to the California Angels.

In 1974, the Rangers were the only MLB team to finish over .500 after a two back-to back 100-loss seasons.
