ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Texas Rangers surpassed the two million mark in home attendance Monday in their 46th game at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, the fastest the club has ever reached the mark.

Attendance at Rangers Ballpark for Monday's series opener between the Rangers and Boston Red Sox was 44,132.

Texas reached the two million mark in the 50th game in 1994. The Rangers didn't reach that plateau until their 55th game last year.

Texas entered Monday's game ranked second in the majors in attendance with an average of 43,608 fans per game. Philadelphia ranks first at 44,758 per game.

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.

Will Rangers set attendance record?

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Despite the record heat this summer, the Texas Rangers are on the verge of smashing a home attendance record. The club enters today's home finale with a total attendance of 2,903,441, which ranks third in club history behind only 1997 (2,945,244) and 1998 (2,927,409).

So, do a little math and with a crowd of 41,804 today, the Rangers would set a franchise record for attendance. The team's current average of 36,293 ranks fifth in the American League and ninth in the majors. The Rangers have the largest overall (+443,716) and per-game (+5,546) increases in attendance of any major-league team over the same number of dates in 2010.

Michael Young, a veteran of some lean years, said breaking the attendance record would be a significant event.

"It would, it really would. I'm real proud of fan base for doing something like that," Young said. "It's been a scorching summer, but it means a lot to us that every time we come home to our home ballpark we have their support. I think our fans now are starting to recognize how much of a home-field advantage can mean to a home team in baseball. We definitely feed of our crowd. We feed off our energy and that definitely feels good."
