Elvis Andrus took a home run trot at Rangers Ballpark, cheering a ball that landed 1,400 miles away. Prince Fielder enjoyed a victory lap at Miller Park, hugging fans along the way. Kirk Gibson pumped his fist at Chase Field, celebrating while the crowd chanted his name.
All over baseball, it was one big wrap party.
The Arizona Diamondbacks, Milwaukee Brewers and Texas Rangers each clinched Friday night — only once before, on Oct. 5, 1985, had three division spots been decided on the same day, STATS LLC said.
All six divisions already locked up, still five days left in the regular season. Not since 1986, when there were only four divisions, had they all been sealed so early, STATS found.
"This kind of stuff never gets old," a goggles-wearing Michael Young said, spraying bubbly in the middle of the Texas clubhouse. "We know we're in."
The wild-card races got a little less wild, too, with Atlanta and Boston expanding their edges.
The New York Yankees, Philadelphia and Detroit previously clinched their divisions. So with a bunch of games remaining on the schedule, what's left to watch? Plenty.
