Arlington, Texas—The Texas Rangers will wear their road uniforms from the 1986 season for two upcoming games, Wednesday, July 20 at the Los Angeles Angels and Saturday, August 6 at the Houston Astros.
The club changed its road uniform for 1986 to all gray with the blue block RANGERS lettering on the front and name and number on the back. The pants are solid gray and the cap is blue with a red T.
This marks the 30th anniversary of the 1986 Rangers club that won 25 more games than in 1985 (62-99), finishing at 87-75 in second place in the A.L. West Division, 5.0 games behind the California Angels.
