A cap worn by manager Bruce Bochy will be one of the items of display at the Hall of Fame Museum.

For the first time in franchise history, the Texas Rangers are world champions.

Now, artifacts from the Rangers’ historic run are coming to the Hall of Fame.

 Following the Rangers’ 5-0 win, the team and players generously donated several artifacts that tell the story of their victory to the Hall of Fame, and those pieces will soon take a permanent place in Cooperstown.

 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

 These and other pieces from the 2023 Postseason will be featured in the Autumn Glory exhibit, which will be on display through the 2024 Postseason. Timing on the opening of the 2023 Postseason version of Autumn Glory will be announced in the coming weeks.
