The Texas Rangers won the World Series, the final of the North American Baseball Championship (MLB), on Wednesday for the first time in its 63 years of existence against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
A 5-0 victory on Wednesday in Phoenix gave the title to the Rangers, winners 4 matches to 1.
The Rangers, based in Dallas, started as the Washington Senators in 1961, before moving to Texas in 1972. They failed twice in the World Series in 2010 and 2011 against San Francisco and St. Louis.
The Texan team is led by baseball legend Bruce Bochy (68 years old). A former player, Bochy had already experienced success in the World Series as a coach with the San Francisco Giants in 2010, 2012 and 2014, before hanging it up in 2019.
He came out of retirement in 2022 to take over the Rangers, after having occasionally managed the French team for fun, the country where he was born in 1955.
