Rangers pass three million in attendance
ARLINGTON -- The Rangers have drawn more than three million fans for the first time in club history.

The Rangers moved over the three-million mark when the official attendance for Thursday's game was announced at 36,102. That leaves Texas with a season attendance of 3,003,143. On Wednesday, the Rangers surpassed last year's club record of 2,946,949, and they still have 10 home games left in the season.

The Rangers are expecting sellout crowds for this weekend's series against the Mariners. The Rangers have approximately 1,000 tickets remaining for Friday and Saturday, while Sunday is down to scattered singles, standing room only and obstructed view.

The Rangers are the third team to reach three million in attendance this season, joining the Yankees and Phillies.
