Yesterday I was able to attend the Rangers season ticket holder picnic at The Ballpark (my friend Stan couldn't go, so he gave his two tickets to me and my friend Monica). It was a lot of fun. We got some player autographs, got to go on a "behind the scenes" tour of The Ballpark, and we got to see the players warm up before batting practice. I'm going to be posting a lot of pictures today (so I apologize for those not interested in baseball). :) Have a great day!! :)
Me and Mike Maddux, former MLB pitcher and pitching coach for the Rangers

Rangers pitcher Neftali Feliz
First baseman Chris Davis (he was just called back up from AAA)
Doors to the locker room. We couldn't go in because players were getting ready for the game. I told the tour guide that didn't bother me. It didn't work! ;)

Monica sitting where perhaps her favorite player once sat!

Pitcher C.J. Wilson was on his way to sign autographs but was nice enough to stop for a quick picture
I could so be a spokeswoman for the Rangers!
Checking out the batting cages (they wouldn't let us go in them though)
