Texas Rangers fans heartbroken after the Game 7 loss in the World Series stayed up late to greet the team as they returned home from St. Louis early Saturday morning.
Nearly 70 fans some holding signs supporting the team lined the chain link fence and barricades at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport as the Rangers flight returned to Texas just after 2:30 a.m.
Pitcher C.J. Wilson walked along the barricades and gave fans high-fives.
But not all fans were happy with Wilson's performance in the series.
"We need an ace. Unfortunately C.J. didn't come through for us this year," said Joseph Laredo. "He had the most wins in the season, but in the series, in the playoffs, he didn't show up."
Many fans said they were disappointed but still hopeful for next season.
"I'll still be there next season to cheer them on, but this one hurts," said Jonathan Nieto. "I'm glad there's an off-season because I can't watch baseball anymore right now."
