ARLINGTON, Texas -- Build it and they will come.
That is certainly the case with the Texas Rangers, who have put together one of the best teams in the majors. In Friday's game against the Colorado Rockies, the Rangers announced a sellout crowd of 46,964 to tie the all-time club record for sellouts in a season with 21.
The previous record was set in 1994 when Rangers Ballpark in Arlington first opened. There were just 11 sellouts in the 2011 season. Friday's sellout was the fourth in a row for the Rangers. It is the fourth time this season they've had four consecutive sellouts.
