The Texas Rangers ended their 50th anniversary season on a good note. They got the win in Tom Grieve’s final TV appearance.
But even though the Rangers didn’t like how the season turned out, fans still came to the games at Globe Life Field to celebrate 50 years in Texas. I can’t wait to see who the Rangers will target during the off-season to make this team better for next season.
Instead of doing a Texas Rangers Weekly Report, Let’s look back at some of the fun memories of this season.
3 memorable moments from the Texas Rangers’ 50th anniversary season
Josh Smith gets an Inside The Park home run
Probably one of my favorite memories of the season was this one. Josh Smith was called up during the season as he was doing well at Triple-A. He was hitting the ball a lot into the outfield and a lot of the time the ball ended up almost clearing the wall. Then one game, he got the break of a lifetime when a outfielder made a fielding error.
I don’t know what the future holds for Smith and the Rangers. Hopefully, the Rangers decide to bring him back next season. I think he makes a great addition to the Rangers roster.
Eli White’s Robbery of the Year
Rangers outfielder Eli White was having such a great season in the outfield until he got injured. But before the injury, White made what I’m calling the home run robbery of the season. Watch the highlight of it below and tell me what you think of it. I don’t blame JI-Man Choi for just smiling, I would be at a lost for words as well if that happened to me.
Aaron Judge hits number 62 at Globe Life Field
I have to tip my cap to one of the best players in the league. I’m sure you all know who I’m talking about since it was the “elephant in the room” that everyone was talking about.
Aaron Judge made history by becoming the American League Home Run King, passing Roger Maris with his 62nd long ball in Texas. It’s another record or historic event that happened at Globe Life Field not involving the Rangers.
It’s time to take back our yard, don’t you think? I can’t wait to see who the Rangers add to this squad for the 2023 season. Hopefully, we can see some Rangers postseason baseball in the near future, and create some of our moments.
