Rangers announce springtime travel
American League champions will be on the move
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - The AL champion Texas Rangers will be
the first major league team to play in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
The Rangers announced Tuesday that they will play an exhibition
game against Coastal Carolina University on March 29 at the home of
their new high Class-A team.
New Rangers managing partner Chuck Greenberg is also the
managing partner of the Myrtle Beach Pelicans. When that
affiliation was announced in September, the date of the game was
set, but the opponent wasn't revealed until Tuesday.
After breaking spring training from Arizona, the Rangers will
play in Myrtle Beach, then play at new Triple-A team Round Rock
before opening the regular season at home April 1 against Boston.
