Texas Lottery Named Presenting Sponsor of Silver Boot Series Between Rangers and Astros

Division rivals to play 13 times in 2024

April 2nd, 2024

Arlington, Texas— The Texas Rangers and Houston Astros today announced Texas Lottery as the presenting sponsor of the Silver Boot Series, the season-long battle between the two American League West Division rivals for the coveted silver cowboy boot trophy.

Through 23 years of regular-season matchups, the Rangers hold the all-time Silver Boot Series lead, 134-132. The two teams will meet 13 times in 2024, after last facing one another in the 2023 Postseason, when the clubs met for an epic clash in the American League Championship Series, which saw the Rangers defeat the Astros to win the American League pennant.

“The Texas Lottery is thrilled to return as the presenting sponsor of the Silver Boot Series and be a part of one of the fiercest rivalries in all of baseball,” said Robert Rivera, Chairman of the Texas Lottery Commission. “Collaborating with the Rangers and Astros weaves the Texas Lottery into the patchwork of Texas, igniting passion among fans and lottery players statewide and making every game in this rivalry a jackpot of excitement. We are looking forward to a great season.”

Included in the sponsorship, Texas Lottery will receive in-stadium branding at Globe Life Field during all Silver Boot Series games and will carry out ticket giveaways and unique experiences for fans.
