The Texas Rangers baseball 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. After the 1971 season, the new Senators moved to Arlington and debuted as the Texas Rangers the following spring.
Starting July 3 and running through October 23, the Fielder Museum will feature an exhibit illuminating the history of this legendary franchise and celebrating its importance to Arlington's well-earned title of Entertainment Capital of Texas.
The Fielder Museum is located at 1616 W. Abram Street, Arlington, TX 76013, and is open 11AM to 3PM Tuesday through Saturday and other times by appointment. Admission is $5.00 for ages 12 and over, free for children under 12.
