On Wednesday, the Texas Rangers won their first World Series title in the franchise’s 63-year existence, and the The Babylon Bee says God had a hand in the achievement.

As The Daily Signal reported Thursday, the Rangers are unique among the league’s teams:

“The Texas Rangers, who won their first World Series in 63 seasons Wednesday night, is also the only team in Major League Baseball not to hold a ‘Pride Night’-style event celebrating LGBTQ individuals.”


“A total of 29 out of 30 MLB teams have hosted a Pride Night, but the Rangers’ refusal to give in to the pressure is a ‘courageous stand against the tsunami of corporate wokeness,’ The Washington Stand’s Joshua Arnold wrote last year.”

According to the Daily Signal’s headline, “Fans Note That Only MLB Team Not to Celebrate ‘Pride’ Just Won World Series”

Meanwhile, the satirical Babylon Bee’s headline had a different take:

“God Rewards Only Team That Doesn't Have A Pride Night With World Series Win”

“The Lord has granted a World Series championship to the Texas Rangers, the one and only Major League Baseball team to not host a Pride Night,” the satirical article begins.

“Despite mounting pressure as the remaining 29 MLB teams honored satanic drag queens, the Texas Rangers held firm,” The Bee continues, noting that the Rangers had been widely dismissed as a contender this year.

Major League Baseball’s support of LGBTQ ideology doesn’t stop with hosting “Pride” nights, however.

“At least 20 teams have promoted or funded groups that advocate or are directly involved in child gender transitions,” National Review reported last year.
