Real Texas Baseball (Texas Rangers slogan)

"Real Texas Baseball” is a slogan of the Texas Rangers that was introduced in February and March 2014. Most people liked the slogan, but others questioned it.

“So ‘Real Texas Baseball’ is the Rangers’ marketing slogan for the season? The hell does that even mean?” was a Twitter comment on March 14, 2014. Some others thought that the slogan disrespected the other Texas major league baseball team, the Houston Astros.


Wikipedia: Texas Rangers (baseball)
The Texas Rangers are a professional baseball team located in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, based in Arlington, Texas. The Rangers franchise is currently a member of the Western Division of Major League Baseball’s American League. Since 1994, the Rangers have played in Globe Life Park in Arlington in Arlington, Texas. The team’s name is borrowed from the famous law enforcement agency of the same name.

The franchise was established in 1961 as the Washington Senators, an expansion team awarded to Washington, D.C., after the city’s first ballclub, the original Washington Senators, moved to Minnesota and became the Twins. After the 1971 season, the new Senators moved to Arlington, Texas, and debuted as the Rangers the following spring.
