Texas Rangers Raise Their First World Series Championship Banner in Franchise History

The Texas Rangers celebrated their first-ever World Series championship with a grand banner unveiling at Globe Life Field before their season opener against the Chicago Cubs. The banner, commemorating their historic achievement, was dropped from the roof support high above right field.

The Commissioner’s Trophy was also brought to home plate by manager Bruce Bochy and pitcher Josh Sborz, who recorded the final out in the clinching Game 5 against the Arizona Diamondbacks in November. Bochy expressed gratitude to the fans for their support and encouraged the players to savor the moment and take it all in.

Rangers’ pitcher Max Scherzer, who was on the Washington Nationals’ championship team in 2019, expressed his desire to enjoy the celebration with the fans this time after experiencing a virtual ring ceremony due to COVID-19 restrictions in 2020. Cubs manager Craig Counsell, who had won a World Series himself, admitted to feeling a sense of envy as he watched the ceremony unfold from the opposing dugout.

This victory marks Texas’ first championship in their 52nd season in Texas and 63rd overall for the franchise that began play in 1961. The Rangers came close to winning it all before but fell short in both instances. This time they are finally able to celebrate their success with their fans present at Globe Life Field.
