Rangers raising AL West title flag tonight
The flag will be on top of the center field office building and be raised as part of a pre-game ceremony about 10 minutes before the first pitch.
BTW, here are some highlights planned by the team for the final regular season homestand:
* On October 1, tickets regularly priced up to $25 are just $10 with the Verizon Wireless Friday Night Fireworks ticket special. Cash parking is also just $5 that night, when a spectacular fireworks show themed “From Sea to Shining Sea” music.
* Sunday, October 3 is Fan Appreciation Day with a number of great prizes to be given away. In addition, fans can demonstrate their support by participating in the Claw & Antlers Parade, which begins at 1:15 p.m. Fans who wear their best “Claw & Antlers” garb will be able to parade around the warning track. Fans judged to have the best three outfits will receive official Claws & Antlers shirts.
AL West Championship merchandise will be on sale in the stadium all week as well.
