Baseball season underway

I don’t know how many times I’ve run into people I know at a Texas Rangers game. You would think the 90 miles or so between Tyler and Arlington would be enough of a buffer zone to where that doesn’t happen much but it does, even though there are thousands of fans at the loudest ballpark cheering on their beloved Rangers.

It just comes to show one thing; Tylerites, among millions of other Texans, love their Rangers. It’s been a long wait for baseball season to start back up but the good new is the wait is almost over.

The Rangers open the season at home Monday, March 31 against the Philadelphia Phillies. I’m not crazy about opening up on a Monday night nor about opening the year against a National League team but I’m pumped about the season either way.

There are a lot of new faces this year as the team has had a complete makeover. Ian Kinsler is a Tiger and Prince Fielder is a Ranger. David Murphy is an Indian. Nolan Ryan is out. Shin-Soo Choo is in.

It’s going to be different for sure, and perhaps a bit sad. OK, there’s no perhaps about it and it will take a long time getting used to it, but I’m ready to watch the Rangers take part in America’s pastime. So all I can say is, “Take me out to the ballgame.”
