When I joined the Rigney family, I knew that baseball was a big part of “us” and who we are. Robby’s family has deep roots in baseball, and it is evident in the man cave in our home, in our dates as a young couple in Dallas (My Texas! My Rangers!) and our TV channels at home!
Who knew I would actually love baseball, too?!?!
After I met Robby, baseball became fun to me. I learned to keep score and follow players through the season. I got excited when the Rangers were in the World Series! The girl who knew nothing about sports, could keep up with Sports Center at night. What was happening to me? I was becoming a Rigney.
The ultimate proof that I’m “in,” I couldn’t wait to come to Spring Training for my week off of work. A day game sitting in the berm with my hubby sounds pretty good to me! (I only wish we could bring our dog with us!)
Day #1- Oakland A’s and the Diamondbacks. We had seats behind the players’ wives and kids. Nice shaded area, very chill and relaxed. Nice!
Day #2- Giants v Brewers
On this day, Robby and I relaxed in the berm on a blanket with a few hundred other fans. It’s always entertaining in the berm!
Day #3- Rangers v White Sox
Another great day in the berm! The clouds and a breeze made it the perfect weather.
It’s a long way back to the Ballpark in Arlington!
Robby tried to work with me on keeping scores and stats. Not too sure about this yet, but I think I can get it right!
Oh! AND I got us on TV sending a shout out back to Midland. Watch out, media, I think I like the camera!
Many of you asked, and yes…Will Ferrell showed up to play baseball, but we missed him. Our game time was quite enjoyable, though.
