A 76-year-old woman from Red Oak, Texas was a huge Rangers fan and her wish was to see the Rangers win the World Series.

“I only want to live long enough to see the Rangers win the World Series,” Heneri Ann Short told her doctor last week.

Short’s dying wish looked like it may come true after the Rangers took a series lead by winning Game 5 in Arlington.

Unfortunately, Game 6 was postponed until Thursday because of the weather in St. Louis, and Short died on Wednesday night after losing her fight with cancer.

Texas doesn’t need any more pressure to close out the World Series, but it wouldn’t hurt to win it for Short.
