Did you know I’m a baseball fan? When I moved to Texas in 1989 I saw my first major league baseball game. I fell in love. It was instant rapture to see it in person; to hear the crack of the bat, and the roar of the crowd. I was hooked.
Been a fan ever since.
In fact, when the new Ballpark in Arlington opened in 1994, I was there. I was 9 months pregnant with my daughter, but I made it to opening night and I’ll never forget it.
I may not know every players stats, or the pitching line-up. I may not follow every second, and every play (ADD, yo), but I DO love this team. I love their heart and I am thrilled that they are ONE win away from making it to the World Series…...again.
With that in mind, I am rallying for the Rangers. I am sending every winning Charlie Sheen vibe their way and I am posting my photographs from my last trip to the Ballpark.
Do join me in spirit to root for this Texas team.
Let’s GO RANGERS! Let’s GO!

Fans and the cotton candy guy.
The DFW airport flight route goes over the Ballpark.
Even the billboards are fans of the Rangers.
Fly ball catching. They make it look easy.
When the Rangers score, the Texas pride comes out as they wave the Texas flags.
Not easy facing a ball coming at you at raging speeds.
Josh Hamilton, star player with a Cinderella story.
The Rangers mascot. They sell the pillow pet of him here. Awh!
Keep them coming across that home plate.
Let’s hear it for the Rangers!
This is my baseball team. I am so proud of them! No matter what, win or lose, they have played some great ball.
Let’s go Rangers! LET’S GO!! Clap! Clap!
Are you a baseball fan? What team do you hope makes it to the World Series?
