Rangers Catch a Flight to STL

For the second time in this 107th World Series, the Texas Rangers boarded a charter flight at DFW International Airport bound for St. Louis.

Players and their families began filing into the charter terminal at the airport Tuesday afternoon well ahead of the 2 p.m. scheduled departure time.  The team should arrive in St. Louis at 3:30 p.m.  If you want to track the flight, the flight callsign is AA9403.

Games 1 and 2, both played in the Gateway City, were split 1-1.  The Cardinals and Rangers returned to the Ballpark in Arlington for Games 3, 4 and 5, with the Rangers winning the last two.

Now, with a 3-2 series lead, the World Series heads back to Busch Stadium for the conclusion.

Game 6 of the World Series is Wednesday at 7:05 p.m ... and with any luck, that'll be it.  Should the Rangers lose, Game 7 will be played Thursday, also in St. Louis. 

That is, of course, barring any rain delay.  Rain is heavily forecasted for the St. Louis area Wednesday and may force a delay, pushing Game 6 to Thursday and Game 7, if necessary, to Friday.
