New Sign, Same Stadium
Texas Rangers director of communications Gregg Elkin, an all-around fine American, today e-mailed Unfair Park a pic of the new sign installed this week over the Home Plate entrance at the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. Says Rangers president Jeff Cogen, "This signage replacement at the home plate entrance represents the final element of the re-branding of Rangers Ballpark in Arlington," but damned if we can see anything in the picture above. Looks like a big blank space to us.
So I asked Elkin, not at all in a smart-ass way, whether this was done intentionally so it'd be easier to change the sign next time there's a name change? Says Gregg, "It's easier [to read] in person, believe me!" Yeah, like I'm going to the ballpark to find out. --Robert Wilonsky
