The Texas Rangers, not to be confused with Walker, Texas Ranger, have been an impressive baseball program but have had some incredibly wild swings over the last decade. From being basically one pitch away from a World Series berth to having an injury-riddled season just a bit ago, The Texas Rangers are nothing short of a wild ride.
The team that originally started as the Washington Senators, then relocated in the 1970s has become a mainstay in the AL West contention. Facing off against the Seattle Mariners, Houston Astros, Oakland Athletics and Los Angeles Angels with regular frequency in a fight for the title. The Texas Rangers have yet to win a World Series, but with each year it seems more likely that it’s only a matter of time for this team to see it’s name engraved in the trophy.

Since the Texas Rangers are commonly streamed on FOX Sports, you can likely get access to online streams of the games through a Sling TV account.

Not the cheapest option, but MLB.TV has suited the needs of hundreds of thousands of baseball fans around the US through their team packages. One major complaint about MLB.TV has been their blackout policy, which occasionally leads to teams not streaming the games online to local audiences. There are ways around this through VPN services, but these details can be somewhat complicated.
