Rangers World Series

Students share thoughts on this years World Series matchup

For the first time in over a decade, the Texas Rangers are in the World Series, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. After defeating the Houston Astros in a thrilling series, the Rangers are hopeful to capture their first ever World Series Title. Both the Rangers and Diamondbacks were major underdogs to win it all coming into the season and have both had to fight an uphill battle to make it.

Through two games the series is tied one to one. The Rangers were able to comeback and win game one thanks to a clutch two run home run by Corey Seager to force extra innings, along with a walk off home run by the ALCS MVP, Adolis Garcia. Game two was a different story though with the Diamondbacks dominating with excellent pitching and hitting everything that came their way. The next three games will be played in Arizona where both teams are hoping to gain control of the series.

“I’m so excited to watch with my family,” senior Zoe Westman said. “It’s been so long since our last World Series, and I’ve been watching all year. I just want to see us finally win one.”

Fans are eager for the Rangers first world series appearance in over 12 years after losing back to back titles in 2010 and 2011. Most Rangers fans are optimistic about the team’s chances to secure their first ever title. 

“I really like our chances of winning,” sophomore Nick Carrell said. “I think this team has what it takes to win it all.”

While some students could care less about what the Rangers are doing, the same could not be said for their parents. 

“I would have no idea that we were even doing good if it wasn’t for my dad,” junior Blake Vines said. “He’s constantly watching them.”

A few students are rather pessimistic concerning the Rangers chances against Diamondbacks, or just flat out would rather not see the Rangers win.

“I think it’s going to be like all the other World Series, they’re just not going to come out on top,” sophomore Jackson Beuglar said. “You know they’ve been there before and they just never win.”

For sophomore Sloan Kreig, this World Series hits closer to home than it might for others. Some of her favorite memories have been made at the ballpark with her family.

“Every year my family and I go and watch the Rangers at their stadium,” Kreig said. “This year we watched the Rangers and Astros play, it was really exciting. Even though we didn’t win, I still had a really good time.”
