The Texas Rangers and Energy Transfer announced an expansion of their partnership to include a multi-year deal in which the energy company will become the Rangers’ official jersey patch partner.

The agreement marks the first time that the Rangers will have a jersey patch partner, and Texas will be one of 19 Major League teams with a jersey sponsorship in 2024.

Energy Transfer, one of the largest energy infrastructure companies in the U.S. with headquarters based in Dallas, has been associated with the Rangers since May 2018, when it made a significant commitment to endowing the programs and operations of the Texas Rangers MLB Youth Academy at Mercy Street Sports Complex presented by Toyota in West Dallas.

Since opening its doors in December 2017, more than 100,000 athletes have participated in Academy programs, and more than 115 youth have committed to playing college baseball and softball.

Energy Transfer will also be expanding its marketing presence with the Rangers, which has included ballpark signage and radio network inventory beginning in 2018.  

“Energy Transfer is proud to be the first jersey patch partner of the world champion Texas Rangers,” said Energy Transfer co-CEO Mackie McCrea.

“Our shared commitment to supporting youth programs throughout North Texas makes our longstanding partnership with the Rangers a natural for us. Expanding our partnership to include the jersey patch creates an opportunity for us to show our support for the team while aligning our brand with Rangers fans throughout the Metroplex and across the country.”

“The Texas Rangers are proud to extend our partnership with Energy Transfer,” said Rangers Chief Revenue Officer Jim Cochrane.

“We have enjoyed a strong relationship with Energy Transfer through its outstanding philanthropic efforts with the Rangers Foundation and Youth Academy. With Energy Transfer’s generosity, the Rangers have been able to significantly expand the initiatives at our Academy. We look forward to continuing to work together.”

The circle patch, which includes ENERGY TRANSFER and the company logo, will be located on the right sleeve of all six of the Rangers’ jerseys.

On the four home jerseys: white, powder blue, City Connect, and the special gold-trimmed edition for selected 2024 games, the patch will be in Rangers blue (PMS 288). On the two road jerseys: gray and blue, the patch will be in white.
