Texas Ranger fans camp out for World Series tickets.
Talk about an all-nighter! It was a slumber party outside Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, starting Saturday night and lasting as long as 15 hours for some folks.
Texas Rangers fans are very optimistic the team will go to the World Series again. Hundreds of them stood in line for hours just to get tickets to potential World Series games."I can't even put it into words how excited I am. It's pretty amazing stuff," said Rangers fan Lonea Gilbert.
Esequiel Rosas was first in line, while others were huddled under blankets, reading the newspaper, or throwing a football. "I had a Starbucks Grande, so I'm holding up," said Rosas.
Once the gates opened at 9 a.m., Rangers fans swarmed the box office windows. Cash changed hands, and buyers celebrated their seats. "I'm very satisfied. I can't wait to get there and enjoy it. It's going to be an awesome time," said Rosas.
If the Rangers make it to the World Series, then games 3, 4, and if necessary, 5, (in the best of 7 series) will be played at Rangers Ballpark on October 22-24.
Those tickets sold out fast on Sunday. "The games we came to see last year, they lost, so we're hoping, of course, they go all the way," said fan Paula Reed.
The World Series is just three weeks away. And fans hope the Rangers will be there, so they won't have to get refunds. "Really excited. I just really want to go. Sounds like a lot of fun," said fan Kera Oxentenko.
"I'm hoping for a world championship for the Rangers. They're going to go all the way this year, I say," said fan Frank Smith.
