The Texas Rangers have been to consecutive World Series, had a perfect game and hosted Major League Baseball's first regular-season interleague game since moving into their ballpark 20 years ago.

Their stadium has also been home to four American League MVPs, and used to have Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan sitting in the front row.

The 20th anniversary of the first regular-season game played there is Friday. The Rangers host Houston in the opener of a 10-game homestand.
