The Texas Rangers have been among the top teams in Major League Baseball in 2012, and on TicketNetwork.com, they have also been the most sought-after tickets in the league.
Games at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington have accounted for nearly 12% of all MLB tickets sold through the TicketNetwork.com marketplace, nearly 3% more than their closest competitor, the New York Yankees. Even more impressively, the Rangers have sold more than two times the number of tickets than any of their American League West rivals combined. The team has had an electrifying first half (see video below to see Mother Nature's proof) and currently boasts the second-best record in baseball, having out-slugged their opponents all season long, scoring a league-leading 443 runs.
Having the Rangers and Yankees atop the rankings is not really a surprise as they are the two best teams in baseball, but one surprise is the disappointing Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox have been a fixture as one of the top selling teams in previous years, but they have not lived up to those standards in 2012. The team currently ranks No. 11, behind teams like the Milwaukee Brewers, Pittsburgh Pirates and even the typically attendance-challenged Tampa Bay Rays.

On Friday, TicketNetwork fielded a team at the Achieve Hartford! Community Spelling Bee, where over 40 teams competed for glory and fame. The event was not your typical spelling bee. Instead of individuals spelling their own words, teams competed in rounds against five other teams at a time. The same word was given to the whole “swarm,” and whichever team outlasted the others was the champ for that round. Finally, the winners from each swarm were brought together in a final round to determine the ultimate champion.
Although we didn’t win (who knew there was an “i" in revirescent?), the event was a blast. Several local mascots were present to get the crowd cheering, and all of the teams were encouraged to pick a creative team name and dress up in awesome costumes. The TicketNetwork SpellMasters dressed up as wizards (get it? SPELL masters? Like, spelling and spellcasting…never mind) and came thisclose to winning the costume contest, falling to the Tough Cookies wearing Girl Scout cookie costumes.
Aside from competing, TicketNetwork also helped sponsor the event, which benefits Achieve Hartford!, an organization that supports education reform and community involvement in the Hartford Public School District.
In honor of the spelling bee, here are a few great videos from the National Spelling Bee.
