Nelson Cruz #17 and the Texas Rangers celebrates after winning Game Six of the American League Championship Series 15-5 against the Detroit Tigers to advance to the World Series at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington on October 15, 2011 in Arlington, Texas.
They did it again. The Texas Rangers are back in the World Series.
Again this year, home field advantage goes to the National League after they won the All-Star game back in July. That means the Rangers will get just three home games in the best-of-seven series against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Tickets through the club are sold out, according to TexasRangers.com, but some tickets still remain through brokering services.
Game 1 is Wednesday at Busch Stadium in St. Louis.
