No Fan Rally Planned For Rangers This Year

ARLINGTON (AP) – Last year, a fan rally followed the Texas Rangers’ first appearance in a World Series.

This time, having lost the Fall Classic for the second straight year, the party is off.

The Rangers lost to the St. Louis Cardinals in seven games after coming within one strike of clinching the Series twice in Game 6.

Rangers spokesman John Blake told The Associated Press on Saturday that the team decided before the Series even began that no party should be held if they lost this year.

Blake said that the Rangers’ “expectations were higher, and if we didn’t win, we didn’t think it merited it.”

Last year, several thousand fans showed up for a rally even though the Rangers had lost to the San Francisco Giants in five games.

    I think that the spokesperson for the Rangers is wrong in saying that they’re not having a fan rally.It’s important now more than ever to us fans even though they lost to the Cardinals that we’re still behind them with our support.My God,,every game was so exciting so intense to watch that had me on the edge of my seat!There’s next year so until then,learn from the mistakes made in the play-offs saying that the Rangers are a GREAT team representing our state off,and on a field living by the word ethics,……
