Fans can vote for Rangers 40th anniversary team

During the month of May, the Rangers will celebrate their 40th anniversary by giving fans the opportunity to vote for the top players in team history.

Fans can vote for the best players at each position at texasrangers.com/alltimeteam through May 31. The Rangers 40th Anniversary All-Time Team will be announced in June and its members will be honored on the club’s annual alumni weekend, Aug. 10-12.

Fans who fill out ballots will be entered for a chance at two tickets to the Dr Pepper Texas Rangers 40th Anniversary Weekend Luncheon. Five winners will be chosen.

According to a Rangers news release, the ballot was compiled by taking the club’s all-time leaders by games played at each position. The lists of pitchers were compiled by using the Rangers’ all-time leaders for wins, starts, appearances and saves. As a result, select players may be listed at more than one position.
