    Win or lose, Game 5 of the World Series will be the last game played in the Ballpark in Arlington this season.

    After a 1-1 split in St. Louis, many Rangers fans hoped the team would sweep the games against the Cardinals at home -- allowing the fans to celebrate the franchise's first World Championship in their own park, with the team.

    After Saturday's Game 3 loss, that is no longer a possibility and if that first world title is to happen this year it'll happen in St. Louis.

    It'll still be pretty sweet.

    Even though we won't be celebrating a world title tonight, the Rangers have plenty of good things in store for fans Monday night at the Ballpark.

    Disney superstar and North Texas native Demi Lovato will belt out the National Anthem while former Dallas Cowboys quarterback and NFL Hall of Famer Roger Staubach will toss out the ceremonial first pitch. 

    Catching Staubach's pitch will be Texas Rangers Hall of Fame pitcher Kenny Rogers.

    Texas and American flags will be unfurled Monday by members of the Arlington police and fire departments.

    Games 6 of the World Series will be played Wednesday in St. Louis.  Game 7, if necessary, will be Thursday in St. Louis.
