On Tuesday, December 22, we will host the Newberg Report Book Release Party at Bedford Ice House, at 2250 Airport Freeway, Bedford, Texas 76022 (about nine miles north of Globe Life Park). We will get rolling at 5:30 p.m and plan to go until 9:00 or so.
As always, we will collect toys and books (new and unwrapped, please) to support the Rangers Foundation’s Cowboy Santas Toy Drive effort.
Autograph guests will include:
* Rangers manager Jeff Banister
* Hall of Fame broadcaster Eric Nadel
* Catcher Robinson Chirinos
* Lefthander Sam Freeman
* Former Rangers lefthander (and current front office exec) Darren Oliver
* Rangers minor league hitting coordinator Josue Perez
And we may not be done; stay tuned for added details.
Please plan to be there early – some of our autograph guests may have to leave around 7:00.
Jared Sandler (pre/postgame host for the Rangers Radio Network) and his 105.3 The Fan buds Ben Rogers and Jeff “Skin” Wade (of the Ben and Skin Show) will emcee the event, which will include fan Q&A with our guests.
Bedford Ice House is an awesome new family-friendly, non-smoking venue with a large main room plus a huge patio – with a forecast that day calling for a high of 72 degrees.
Admission is free.
Your kids will be on Winter Break.
The food there is all made from scratch, and there’s plenty to wash it down with.
You can get books autographed by Rangers folks for yourself and to give as awesomely unique holiday gifts. (I’ll have not only the 2016 Bound Edition on hand but also plenty copies of the 2011 and 2012 Bound Editions, covering the Rangers’ two World Series seasons.)
Every box is checked, right?
More details soon. But for now, mark your calendars for Tuesday night.
