ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- The Texas Rangers had the coldest day game at their home ballpark three weeks ago. Now they've had their coldest May game.

The game-time temperature of 44 at Rangers Ballpark on Thursday night against the Chicago White Sox was 37 degrees cooler than the previous night.

It was a 40-degree difference on April 10, when the temperature at first pitch was 39 degrees for a day game after it had been 79 the night before.

The coldest game-time temperature in Arlington was on April 7, 2007, against Boston. It was 38 degrees.

It looked as if there would be several thousand no-shows in a crowd featuring plenty of ski caps and jackets.
