Frisco RoughRiders TicketsThe Frisco RoughRiders team is the Double-A minor league affiliate of the Texas Rangers. Though it was established in 2003, Frisco is hardly the first Texas League team to set up shop in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Up until 1970, the city was the home of the Steers, Eagles, Giants, Spurs and many more. After getting off to a hot start, the RoughRiders earned a berth in the Texas League championship series in its first year, losing to the San Antonio Missions 4-1. The team then had a stellar sophomore season, which culminated in the 2004 championship with a 4-1 series victory against the Round Rock Express. It also appeared in the 2008 and 2012 championship series, losing to Arkansas and Springfield, respectively. Frisco has served as an important stop for many notable major league players, including Elvis Andrus and Adrian Gonzalez.
