Rangers finally achieve World Series dream, marking a historic moment in franchise history

Texas Rangers hoist their first World Series championship banner

The Texas Rangers finally achieved their long-awaited dream of winning a World Series championship in 2021, marking a historic moment for the franchise. To celebrate this achievement, the team unveiled a championship banner before their season opener against the Chicago Cubs at Globe Life Field. The banner was dropped from the roof support, signifying the end of an era and the beginning of a new chapter in Rangers history.

Before the unveiling, manager Bruce Bochy and pitcher Josh Sborz brought out the Commissioner’s Trophy, which was won by the Rangers in November against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Bochy took a moment to express his gratitude to the fans for their support throughout the years and encouraged the players to savor this special moment. Championship rings will be presented before the second game of the series on Saturday night, adding to the excitement of their victory celebration.

The Rangers had previously lost in the World Series in 2010 and 2011 but were able to overcome these setbacks and secure their first championship in 52 years in Texas and 63rd overall as a franchise that began in 1961. Players like Max Scherzer, who was part of Washington Nationals’ championship team in 2019, expressed his joy at being able to celebrate with fans after missing out on it last year due to COVID-19 restrictions. Cubs manager Craig Counsell, who scored the run that gave Florida Marlins their first World Series win in 1997, couldn’t help but feel a pang of jealousy watching from across town.
