Josh Hamilton Story
October 23, 2010 by staff
Josh Hamilton Story, In his 17-season history, it is safe to say Rangers Ballpark never shook as if struck on Friday night. And in his 39 seasons with a team of professionals, it is safe to say that baseball fans ever in the Dallas-Fort Worth, screamed and shouted as they did during and after Game 6 of the ALCS.
Can you blame them? For the first time in history, the World Series will not be a free area of Texas Rangers. After 11 seasons in Washington as senators and four decades in the metropolitan area, the Rangers are leaving behind its reputation as the most free franchise in baseball history and heading towards its first Fall Classic. Game 1 is scheduled for Wednesday night in a National League city to be determined this weekend.
Eventually, your route to this place for the band Ginger Ale could not have been more appropriate. A 6-1 victory on Friday gave the American League pennant in six games over the Yankees defending champion New York, the same franchise that crushed all of the best teams earlier in the history of the Rangers during late 90′s.
And the last batter he could not have been more appropriate as Alex Rodriguez (notes) – Former Ranger and Tom Hicks controversial 252 million man – struck out to Texas about Neftali Feliz (notes). The third strike sent Rangers Ballpark in a flurry of red, with fireworks shooting from the roof gardens.
The Rangers and leave behind the Mariners and Nationals, as franchises not only make the World Series and it’s hard not to appreciate its history, with more stories of a blog can possibly handle.
• Nolan Ryan, pitcher Hall of Famer, who started the team from bankruptcy.
Jon Daniels • 33-year-old GM who built all this with a trading and 55 million budget.
• Ron Washington, who began this season with one of the most disappointing moments of his life and is scheduled to end with one of its most successful.
• Josh Hamilton (notes), the former drug and alcohol addict turned MVP candidate and savior of the team.
• Cliff Lee (notes), the star pitcher acquired at the trade deadline and Colby Lewis (notes), the championship-clinching pitcher plucked from his exile in Japan.
• Elvis Andrus (notes) and Feliz, the two budding young superstars won 157 games in Atlanta for Mark Teixeira (notes).
• Vladimir Guerrero (notes), the aging of the DH and Hall of Fame possible without a previous World Series appearance of his name.
• Michael Young (notes), the Rangers sentenced to life imprisonment, which has finally reached the promised land after a decade of disappointment.
And so on …
In fact, it’s an exciting time for a team that apparently has always flown under the radar for MLB. But now they can raise their claws and horns in honor of reaching the final focus. The next two weeks will be an exciting time for them, and finally a walk in the circle last dance.
After 50 years of frustration, and Rangers are no strangers to the World Series.
