Introduction: Texas Rangers Franchise
Washington Senators (1961-1971), Texas Rangers (1972-present)

     The American professional Major League Baseball (MLB) baseball team named the Texas Rangers plays in Arlington, Texas (in the Dallas-Fort Worth area) as a member of the American League (AL) West division. The franchise was established in 1961 as an American League expansion team first in Washington, D.C. (the old Washington Senators had moved to Minnesota to become the Minnesota Twins by 1960). The new Washington Senators played their first season's home games at Griffith Stadium (1961) after which they moved to the new RFK Stadium (1962-1971). After their 1971 season, the Senators franchise moved to Texas and adopting the name of the Texas Rangers. In Texas their home stadiums were first Arlington Stadium (1972-1993) and then Globe Life Park in Arlington (1994-present).
      As the Texas Rangers the baseball club has made eight appearances in division championships in 1996, 1998, 1999, 2010, 2011, 2015, and 2016. In 2010, the Rangers won their first American League pennant after beating the New York Yankees in six games. In the 2010 World Series the Rangers were defeated by the San Francisco Giants in five games. The next year they once again advanced to the 2011 World Series as American League champions only to loose to the St. Louis Cardinals in seven games.
      It should be noted that in the early years baseball teams used pennants rather than flags (hence the practice of calling championships winning the pennant) and there were a host of unofficial manufacturer's variants of these and later fan flags marketed for the Rangers and their fans. They included flags, banners, and pennants too numerous to all be shown here.

Texas Rangers Yacht Flags and Pennants

   
images from Pete Loeser, 27 May 2019

For those baseball fans who own boats and want to display their team loyalty afloat, these flags are available for them. The flags take the form of either a broad pennant or a square boat flag with either a cap or team logo near the hoist. Each uses the individual team's colors in their designs.
Note: Because of the small size of these nautical broad pennants. usually about a foot tall (approximately 30.48 centimeters), they have also gained popularity as "golf cart" flags. It should also be noted that a broad pennant, or any other flag shape, is only called a "burgee" if it designates an organized boating club.
