Wednesday at The Ballpark

Another Rangers win over the Yankees last night and another wave with a sold out crowd. This time it happened in the top of the 8th with Mike Adams pitching for the Rangers. Two tweets perfectly show just one of the reasons the wave sucks.

These two fans missed out on parts of the game because people were doing the wave. The whole point of going to a game is to, you know, watch it. And with the way that game went last night you’d think and hope that the crowd could stay interested.

Last night also featured two adults basically stealing a ball tossed into the crowd from a little kid.


The Rangers made things right with the kid while the other couple continued to be oblivious to what happened. However, I mention this because check out the shirt the kid’s dad was wearing.

Yep, that’s one of our Stop The Wave shirts. You have to expect that the kid will grow up to appreciate baseball the right way. And I can almost guarantee you that the couple that took the ball in the first place were fully taking part in that eighth inning wave.
