In a historic moment for the Texas Rangers franchise, the team has secured its first-ever world championship title. Celebrating their remarkable achievement, the Rangers have generously contributed significant artifacts to the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

Following a decisive 5-0 victory, the team and players have donated key items that encapsulate the narrative of their triumphant journey. These artifacts will soon find a permanent home in Cooperstown, where they will be showcased for baseball enthusiasts and visitors to appreciate.

Artifacts donated by the Rangers following Game 5 in Phoenix include:

  •  Cap worn by manager Bruce Bochy; six managers have at least four World Series titles, but only Bochy has accomplished the feat with multiple teams
  •  Batting helmet worn by World Series MVP Corey Seager
  •  Glove worn by pitcher Josh Sborz, who recorded a save in the final game
  •  Batting gloves worn by Evan Carter, who set a record with nine doubles in the postseason
  •  Jersey and elbow guard worn by Marcus Semien in Game 5
  •  Spikes and cap worn by Game 5 winner Nathan Eovaldi
  •  Bat used by Adolis García in Game 1 when he hit the game-winning home run
  •  World Series luggage tag used by Will Smith, who became the first player in history to win three straight World Series while playing for three different teams; the Rangers set a record with an 11-0 mark on the road during the postseason

Additional artifacts from the 2023 Postseason donated by the Diamondbacks to the Hall of Fame include:

  •  Bat used by Ketel Marte in Game 4 when he extended his postseason hitting streak to a record 20 games
  •  A headset used by broadcaster Greg Schulte during his final season
