Our Danny Fulgencio trailed some of Your Texas Rangers -- among them, Chris Davis, David Murphy, Ian Kinsler, Derek Holland and new hitting coach Clint Hurdle -- as they made the rounds at Children's Medical Center, a holiday tradition amongst athletes spreading cheer to young patients in need. He brought back this slide show and a reminder that the most of the team (sans the just-traded Kevin Millwood, dang it) will be trading autographs for Toys for Tots tomorrow out at the Ballpark in Arlington beginning at 5:15 p.m. Me, I'm getting Eric Nadel's for sure.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
