Wow.

In 2001, the Rangers signed Alex Rodriguez to a ten year contract to get them to the World Series.

In A-Rod's final At Bat in the tenth season of that contract, he did just that, striking out for the final out of the 9th inning of the 4th Yankee loss of the ALCS against his old team.

Congratulations to the Rangers and all the Rangers fans, your long world series wait is over.

American League President Jackie Autry awarded Rangers owner Nolan Ryan with the League Championship trophy citing the memory of Gene Autry and Ryan's tenure on Gene's California Angels in her presentation.

Outfielder Josh Hamilton thanked Jesus Christ and God when Mrs. Autry presented him with the ALCS MVP. Hamilton said the Rangers don't know how to fail.

We'll see about that next week.
