Take Me Out to the Ballpark
Since interest in the Texas Rangers (baseball team, not law enforcement agency) has picked up as a result of recent excellent play, I thought I'd plug this website: http://www.newbergreport.com/, which is all about the Rangers and system farm teams. The site is authored by a friend of mine, Jamey Newberg, who knows more about baseball and the Rangers than anyone should. (He also know lots and lots about other sports, as well.) Check it out. And while I'm at it, check out the website of another friend of mine, Talmage Boston (http://www.talmageboston.com/) . Talmage is a genuine baseball historian and lover of the game. His love of the game is nowhere more apparent than in his most recent book and his appreciation of the history of the game is made evident in his first book, which is about baseball in 1939. I found it fascinating. Both sites are worth a look.
