Kenny Rogers had quite a night in July 1994. And how excited were we on October 1, 1996, thanks to John Burkett? Nolan Ryan's first bid at win number 300 failed, but late-inning heroics saved the day. Oddibe McDowell and Bengie Molina have something in common. Michael Young has racked up a few hits in Arlington, and Mickey Rivers did as well.
All these stories and so much more can be found in a unique format that provides 250 numbers, with each telling a story about Ranger history: facts, anomalies, records, coincidences, and enthralling lore and trivia from the legends, stars, and even the forgotten players.
This book isn't just for the diehard Rangers fan. It's for every fan who enjoys watching the Rangers and wants to learn more about their favorite team.

This book brought back many shared memories at Arlington Stadium but it was somewhat manotones and tedious to read. The
constant reference to like numbers distracted from the story line which was really hard to find. Also the closing of each chapter with
a baseball announcer's diatribe about a long forgotten at bat was distracting. There were almost no first person player or coach or
manager anecdotes which made this boring to read. I believe a sabretician would enjoy the book..
