Lubbock, TX (KCBD) - The Rangers are back at home looking for their first win against the Giants in the World Series. One Lubbock family, who usually roots for Texas, will instead cheer on the Giants.
The Gants really may be one of few families that call themselves fans of both teams. But, for this series Sara Ross Gant says because brother and New Mexico native Cody Ross is on the roster, they'll be rooting for giants.
"My brother is Cody Ross and he plays outfield for the Giants," said Sara Ross Gant. She and her husband Joseph and their three boys call Lubbock home. Their family has taken countless trips to ballparks across the country to watch Cody play.
"We've enjoyed watching Cody from high school and working his way up to the minors and playing with Marlins," said Joseph about his brother-in-law.
The Giants picked up Sara's brother in August and now two months later the outfielder and his team have a shot at winning the World Series, the most coveted title in all of baseball.
As a Giant, Ross, who grew up in Portales, was named MVP of the National League this year.
"I just think he's really thankful to the Giants for giving him a chance. It's been a dream come true for him," said Sara Gant.
The Gants know their boys look up to all their uncle has accomplished. "With our boys they set goals and when you work hard it is something you can accomplish when your heart is in the right spot and you are dedicated," said Joseph Gant.
The Gants say they are Ranger fans, but for Cody to get a ring they have to pull for the Giants.
The first pitch will be thrown out in Arlington on Saturday at 5:30 p.m.
