Check out this video of 17-year-old Trent Williams at Monday night's (April 9) Texas Rangers game against the Seattle Mariners. He makes an impressive catch of a Josh Hamilton home run ball on the home run green at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. What he does after the catch is not as impressive, but it is funny as hell.
I'm still get a little numb feeling when I think back on Game 6 of the 2011 World Series. I was in Rangers Ballpark just a few nights earlier for Game 4. There was no doubt in my mind that this was the year. All of the hard work for the team - and the loyalty of the Rangers fans was about to pay off for everyone. I'll never forget the feeling I had when Nelson Cruz misses that ball in right field during Game 6. It was like being punched in the gut.

The deal begins this season and means he will stay in a Rangers uniform at least through the 2016 season.
I saw this guy speak last year at the Texas Rangers Fanfest and thought it was pretty interesting. I never knew there was a special kind of mud that was rubbed on the balls prior to the game. He also answered the question of how many baseballs do they go through during a typical game. As a baseball fan it was something I had often wondered.

As I reported back in November, Rangers Ballpark in Arlington is receiving some major updates and upgrades. The entire outfield area, including Vandergriff Plaza, visitor's bullpen and bleacher seats are getting a facelift. The $11.5 million project will be complete by opening day of this 2012 season.
The tremors felt around Southern California on Thursday didn’t come from an earthquake. The seismic activity came courtesy of all the money the Los Angeles Angels dropped on Albert Pujols, the prize of this year’s free agent class.
