The offseason is always full of fun announcements from teams as they gear up for the upcoming season. So a tweet from the Texas Rangers about adding another video board at Globe Life Park is completely normal. See said tweet with the completely necessary hashtag of #BallparkUpgrades:
Look out... Globe Life Park is getting a new video board! It will be 34ft high x 94 ft wide. #BallparkUpgrades pic.twitter.com/PEvo5LQkqE— Texas Rangers (@Rangers) January 7, 2016
Everything is cool, right? But there appears be something under the surface as pointed out by Dallas/Fort Worth CBS Sports radio host Troy Hughes.
Rangers starter Derek Holland is on the mound and he is facing the Astros. I can't make out the rest, we'll need to take a closer look.
The 2016 season hasn't even started yet and Jose Altuve already has a hit. The Rangers know what's up.
At least Holland had good sense of humor about it.
