Cheers to 40 Years
In doing this job, I’ve found I have to be ready with my camera at a moment’s notice. And, I’ve found I take a ton of photos… more than what’s needed but I try to get that perfect shot for posting on social media.
Because of that (I call it obsessive-compulsive-on-the-camera-button), I have too many photos I can’t use but want to share. Here are a few of my current favorites from today’s 40th Anniversary All-Time Team/Alumni Weekend and Eric Nadel’s Texas Rangers Baseball Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
The weekend beings with the 40th Anniversary Luncheon honoring the All-Time Team and Eric Nadel. They had the most American desert I could imagine… apple pie with a Rangers cookie. It looks amazing and tasted delicious.
Waiting for the celebration on the field tonight, I met several of our prestigious alumni in the media interview room for a little twitter chat. Charlie Hough, Buddy Bell, and Pudge Rodriguez were kind enough to take over the account for a few minutes. I was a big fan of Pudge back in the day, so that was a special moment for me.
In addition to the guys tweeting from @Rangers, some of the alumni were signing an over-sized All-Time Team poster. Here’s Jim Sundberg and Kenny Rogers inking their photo.
When I looked back after snapping a quick photo of Sundberg and Rogers, I saw Nelson Cruz and Michael Young catching up with Rubén Sierra.
After I took my first photo, Elvis Andrus decided to join the party.
Not related to tonight’s ceremonies, but a couple of the players in the clubhouse were trying to prevent me from taking a picture of Holland’s jersey. It took a few tries before I could get a clear photo…
It’s a short homestand, but some of the best memories were made for Rangers fans… including one in the office.
