Since then, the town has made some minor improvements to the park, but it has yet to build a clubhouse.
Before the Rangers deal is final, Major League Baseball would have to waive the clubhouse requirement.
Organizers in Pulaski say the town can't afford to build a clubhouse if Texas isn't willing to commit to more than a one- year deal.
The Rangers want to play the 1997 season in Pulaski, with an option to extend the contract.
