Back in 2008 Texas Rangers Josh Hamilton pulled off an amazing feat when he hit 28 homers at the HR Derby.

Before tonight’s derby the Rangers tweeted out that no one was going to break Hamilton’s record.

Unfortunately for the Rangers Vlad Guerrero broke Hamilton’s record in the first round of tonight’s HR Derby in Cleveland.

Guerrero also hit 29 in the second round.

And Joc Pederson also broke Hamilton’s record with 29.

The Rangers were instantly mocked by Twitter after Pederson and Guerrero broke Hamilton’s record.

The Rangers had to acknowledge their mistake.
