The Texas Rangers held a pretty cool promotion at Globe Life Park this weekend that allowed fans who put deposits on season tickets the opportunity to win upgraded seats for free. All the prospective season ticket holders had to do was smack a dinger out of the park and the Rangers would take care of the rest.
Of the 20 people who took part in the event, only one was able to actually do it. After a few warm up hacks, Rangers fan Byron Anderson was able to take a ball over the left field wall to score the sweet seats. The homer Anderson’s half-season plan for two tickets into four box seats – valued at $8,500. That’s a big money swing right there.
The awesome moment was capped off by Anderson circling around the bases while the PA blasted the song from The Natural, which Anderson says is his favorite movie.
