Although it is not directly in the Lake Ray Hubbard area, there may not be a better family friendly activity that going to a Texas Rangers Baseball Game! With a short drive to the Ballpark in Arlington, you can have an entire afternoon or evening of fun for the whole family. I remember attending the Ranger game when I was about 7 years old. I loved Pete O’Brien just because I liked the way the announcer announced his name. You would have thought I was walking on clouds the day I got his autograph on a baseball. I know get to reminisce my childhood memories watching my children’s eyes light up as the announcers say Josh Hamilton or Ian Kinsler. This is an exciting time since the season opener is on Monday, April 5 at 2:05pm. Personally, my family has created many family memories visiting the Texas Rangers over the years. Garland Independent School District even has a night at the Ballpark which allows students the opportunity to see their teachers in a different light.
One of the special things about visiting a Rangers Game is the extras at the Ballpark. Of course, the food is one of them. There is just something about hearing “Pooooopppp-corn” and “Peanuts” being sold in the stands. The food can cost a small fortune, unless you time your visit on a $1 Dog Night. Another fun experience is the kids Ballpark. There are activites for kids including temporary tatoos, pitching, hitting and even a chance at making a home run. There are many nights throught the season that the Rangers have special promotions from concerts, fireworks, beach towels, t-shirts, and caps.
I am looking forward to the kick off of the season and many other family memories! Do you have a favorite Ranger memory?
