The Texas Rangers will play two exhibition games against the Los Angeles Dodgers at the Alamodome in San Antonio, the Rangers and Ryan Sanders Baseball announced Wednesday.
The series, which will take place March 20 and March 21, is the third year of the Big League Weekend hosted at the Alamodome. The Rangers previously played the Houston Astros and the San Diego Padres.
Tickets for the games go on sale Friday. More than 75,000 fans attended the series in 2013, and 50,000 spectators were present last year.
The Dodgers were the Major League affiliate of the Double-A San Antonio Missions for 23 years, from 1977-2000.
Both teams will play split-squad as the Rangers are also tentatively scheduled to play the Seattle Mariners and the Milwaukee Brewers, and the Dodgers will face the Oakland A’s and the Colorado Rockies.
The Rangers are coming off a 67-95 injury-plagued season while the Dodgers lost to the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Division Series.
