Baseball Hall of Fame receives historic football boots from Texas Rangers rookie Wyatt Langford

ARLINGTON — Wyatt Langford has just begun his career, but is already in the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

The young Texas Rangers hitter sends the shoes he wore on Sunday night's cycle hit to the hallowed halls of Cooperstown.

Langford hit a triple, a double, a single and a home run in the Rangers' 11-2 victory over the Orioles in Baltimore in a nationally televised game on Sunday night.

Langford was selected number 4 in the 2023 MLB Draft and made the Rangers' roster in spring training.

The significance of Langford's performance so impressed the National Baseball Hall of Fame that it reached out for pieces of this historic moment. It was the 11th cycle in Rangers history and the second by a Rangers rookie. The moment is even rarer than those facts suggest, however.

Wyatt Langford was interviewed by ESPN's Sportscenter after hitting a cycle in Baltimore on Sunday.
