The Top 5 Texas Rangers All-Star Performances in franchise history
4. Ivan Rodriguez, 1998 All-Star Game
Pudge entered the 1998 midsummer classic with an insane .350 batting average, and was the starting catcher for the AL squad. In what would go on to be the highest scoring All-Star game in history, another record was set. Pudge would go on to hit three singles and drive in one run, as his three hits would go on to be a record for a catcher.
Rodriguez’s final hit drove in Jim Thome and extended the lead for the AL and they never looked back, winning the game 13-8.
While not other-worldly, Rodriguez’s performance was the epitome of what he was for the Rangers: solid, and exactly what his team needed.
