The Top 5 Texas Rangers All-Star Performances in franchise history
3. Alfonso Soriano, 2004 All-Star MVP
Strolling into the 2004 All-Star game as a starter was Alfonso Soriano, sporting a .289 average and 17 dingers, as he was enjoying his first season as a Ranger after he was traded to Texas for Alex Rodriguez.
Soriano would bat 8th in a high-powered lineup that featured numerous hall of famers, but it was Soriano who would provide the spark the AL team needed. Propelling the AL to victory, Soriano would go two for three with a home run, while driving in three runs.
He would later be crowned All-Star Game MVP, while the AL won the game 9-4.
