Texas Rangers players leaving spring training to return home

The Texas Rangers closed down the team's major league training camp in Arizona, and many players are headed back to North Texas or to their off-season homes.

Roughly 20 players and coaches plan to be on a charter plane Monday to return to Texas.

Others will drive, in order to limit social interaction.
