ST. LOUIS (AP) - No matter how the World Series winds up, the Texas Rangers realize they won’t be No. 1 back home. And that’s all right.

“That’s such a high standard, the Cowboys, in our marketplace,” general manager Jon Daniels said. “But I don’t really look at it as competition with them.

“I think that our fans are good enough and into the sports scene, especially the championship-caliber teams, that there’s enough room for all of us,” he added.

There’s also the Mavericks to contend with.

Daniels notes attendance has picked up dramatically, with the Rangers drawing just under 3 million this season, “and it was the hottest summer on record.”

“I know me being a pampered New Yorker, I had trouble handling it, and you would have, too,” Daniels said. “And these guys are 40,000 strong in 106 degrees at 7:05 at night.”
