Scheffler, Spieth in attendance for Rangers’ historic Game 1 World Series win


Did Scottie Scheffler and Jordan Spieth bring good luck to the Texas Rangers during the first game of the World Series?

The two Dallas-based major champions were present together to support their hometown team’s historic victory on Friday against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Globe Life Park.

Their visit to Globe Life Park was not their first. Spieth threw the first pitch at a Rangers game in 2021, and Scheffler followed suit in 2022, proudly wearing his green jacket after winning the Masters.

Returning to Arlington, Texas, for the Rangers’ first World Series appearance since 2011, both golfers were decked out in Rangers gear.

The Rangers trailed 5-3 heading into the bottom of the ninth inning. Hoping for a comeback, Spieth and Scheffler turned their caps inside out, a gesture known as a “rally cap.”

And it seemed to work. Rangers shortstop Corey Seager hit a game-tying home run, sending the game into extra innings. In the 11th inning, Adolis García, currently one of the hottest hitters, hit a walk-off home run to secure a 6-5 victory for the Rangers — igniting excitement in Spieth’s and Scheffler’s section.

García’s swing set a record with his 22nd postseason RBI, making him the all-time leader in this category. Additionally, the Rangers became the first team in MLB history to win Game 1 of the World Series when trailing by multiple runs in the 9th inning or later.

So perhaps Spieth and Scheffler should return to Globe Life Park for Game 2 on Saturday night to maintain the Rangers’ good luck as they aim for their first-ever championship.
