Security prevents Rangers from celebrating in Chase Field pool after winning World Series

. A raucous celebration after the franchise’s first championship remained on dry land as about a dozen security officers guarded the pool behind the right-center wall at Chase Field. “Are they going over there?’ Game 5 starter Nathan Eovaldi said during an interview with Fox. ”No, I don’t think they are.’ The Rangers could’ve made a run for the water as they initially celebrated their 5-0 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks in Game 5 on Wednesday night.

The Diamondbacks had two splashy celebrations during their improbable run to this year’s World Series — after clinching a playoff spot and after beating the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL Division Series. The Diamondbacks also took a festive dip after securing the 2011 NL West title at home, but were blocked by security following a 2017 playoff clinching. The 2001 World Series championship remained dry as well.
