RangersWED ? 11

The New York Yankees play only two games in North Texas this regular season, and the second one starts tonight. With the sale of the team done and their newly acquired players settling in, the Rangers should be in the right frame of mind to welcome the World Series champs. Come the weekend, the Rangers will host a beaten-up Boston team. The game starts at 7pm at 1901 Rd to Six Flags, Arlington. Tickets are $11-85. Call 817-273-5100.
