Rangers Revel in First World Series Championship in Franchise History: A Night to Remember

Franchise’s first World Series championship banner raised by Texas Rangers

The Texas Rangers celebrated their historic first World Series championship on the eve of their season opener against the Chicago Cubs in Arlington, Texas. The Championship banner was unveiled for the first time in franchise history at Globe Life Field, dropped from the roof support high above right field. The Commissioner’s Trophy was also presented at home plate by manager Bruce Bochy and pitcher Josh Sborz, who recorded the final out in the clinching Game 5 against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Rangers manager Bruce Bochy thanked fans for their tremendous support as they celebrated their historic championship win. Championship rings will be presented to the team before the second game of the series on Saturday night. Bochy encouraged players to savor every moment and soak it all in because winning a World Series is a rare and special achievement.

The Texas Rangers won their first championship after 52 seasons in Texas and 63 overall for the franchise, despite two previous World Series appearances in 2010 and 2011. Cubs manager Craig Counsell expressed his sense of jealousy watching them celebrate their championship banner, as winning a World Series is an extraordinary achievement in baseball.

Rangers pitcher Max Scherzer, who was part of the Washington Nationals’ championship team in 2019, shared his desire to enjoy this moment with fans after having a virtual ring ceremony last year due to pandemic restrictions. The ceremony was a unique moment for both the Rangers organization and their fans as they celebrated this historic win.
