Texas Rangers Fans Sing Along to Creed's 'Higher' During ALDS Game 3 Against Baltimore Orioles

After the second inning of Tuesday night's Game 3, fans sand the Creed hit "Higher" with the Texas Rangers up big.

ARLINGTON, Texas – Creed made an early appearance at the American League Division Series on Tuesday night at Globe Life Field.

And it, well, took everyone “Higher!”

The Scott Stapp-fronted band, about two decades removed from its heyday, has been a touchpoint within Texas Rangers circles over the past several months. Their music, often moody and simultaneously soaring, has kept the club loose and good spirits, especially during slumps on the field.

Rangers pitcher Andrew Heaney shared the internal love for Creed with the rest of the world over the weekend in Baltimore, igniting a wave of online puns and broadcast mentions. Creed itself chimed in, throwing its support behind the Rangers.

The next phase was a singalong at home. The Rangers pushed for it. The request was honored.

After the second inning, with the Rangers already leading the Baltimore Orioles 6-0 thanks mainly to home runs from Corey Seager and Adolis García, “Higher” flooded over the public address system and throughout the closed-roof ballpark.

Texas won 7-1 to advance to the AL Championship Series for the first time since 2011. The Rangers reached the World Series that year.

The lyrics of the 1999 hit, including “Can you take me higher? / To a place where blind men see” were up on the video scoreboard for everyone to follow along. And most everyone did.

The Rangers and their fans likely couldn’t be any higher, until the ALCS moves to Globe Life Field for Game 3 on Oct. 18.

Another singalong awaits.
