Some stores opened late Monday night to let excited Texas Rangers fans buy their AL Championship gear.
Rangers’ fans have waited for more than 10 years for another World Series run.
So, it wasn’t a big deal for many who waited outside a few local Academy stores to buy official merch after the Game 7 blowout of the Houston Astros.
The stores, which usually close around 9 p.m., reopened for a few hours after the big win.
Fans purchased officially licensed t-shirts, hats, hoodies, and more.
And to say they were excited to rep their new swag was an understatement.
