Students celebrate World Series game

The Texas Rangers won for the first time in the franchise’s 63-season history, defeating the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-0 in Phoenix to secure the title in Game 5. After six innings, there was no score in the game and Zac Gallen, the starting pitcher for the Diamondbacks, was pitching masterfully, giving up no hits.

The Rangers have made World Series appearances, specifically in 2010 and 2011. They were defeated by the San Francisco Giants in the World Series in 2010. The next year, in 2011, they met the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series but were defeated once more. These successive appearances were significant events in the franchise’s history, emphasizing its competitiveness at the time.

The Rangers winning was celebrated with a parade held on Nov. 3 at Cowboys Way in the city of Arlington.

Dallas North lake college students share their opinions on Ranger’s victory. North Lake College Baseball player Max Gidden said, “It was very packed and busy, and everyone was pretty positive.”

He said his favorite moment of the winning game was “the turning point of the game,” when Adolis Garcia hit the home run.

Baseball player Aldo Calvillo said, he was emotional, nervous and excited while watching the game. He was very proud when the Texas Rangers won because he has been a Rangers fan since his childhood.

Basketball player Brayden Willoughby, a student on the same squad, described the atmosphere of the procession by saying, “It was the most fun I ever had, just seeing everybody there was fantastic.”

He went on to say that even though he wasn’t watching the game in live , the mood outside was the same since he attended every watch party around Dallas. Given that he said “he celebrated for four days,” it is evident how amazing the experience was for them as a baseball team.

The fans shower their love on X, Facebook, and Instagram. The hashtags like #Texas- Rangers and #RangerNation were used to connect with other fans.

Some fans slept on the s i d e w a l k s around the parade path in order to be the first ones to attend the event. An estimated 500,000 people showed up to celebrate the Rangers win.
