You Can See The Sandlot at Rangers Ballpark Before Spending the Night in the Outfield
I know, I know: It goes too fast, I should be careful what I wish for, etc. etc. But for the moment, damn, I wish my infant son was 5 or 7 or 9, and that he had a perfectly oiled glove, and that he knew what to do with a baseball other than eat it.
Because, man, we would be all over this:
On Saturday, May 11, Rangers Ballpark will throw open its gates to sleeping bag-toting fans, and throw the Rangers' away game against the Astros on the big screen.
Then the real fun starts:

Then it's giant stadium lights out. Last one to fall asleep serves as home plate in the best night Wiffle ball game ever.
