The Texas Rangers are the talk of the Town (Hall)! What you need to know!

As we watched their journey to preeminence, we couldn’t help but notice some similarities between two great local teams: The Texas Rangers and Cook Children’s.

After all, we saw endless collaboration this season, and together we enjoyed watching this team – who lost more than 100 games only two years ago –  overcome every challenge that came their way to make it to the World Series.

From their new “City Connect” uniforms, to injuries to star players, to surprising losing streaks, this scrappy group of players provided us plenty of moments for magic, and now the Rangers are headed to the biggest game in baseball.

Oh, and as far as elevating experiences, if you’ve followed the Rangers this season then you know we have to talk about the song “Higher” by the band Creed. Did you see the band members in the crowd cheering on the team?

Maybe we share more in common with the Rangers than we realized.

As any Rangers’ fan knows, these moments for celebration don’t come around too often so let’s use our imagination and have some fun!

First, join us for one of our Employee Town Hall Meetings. Here’s what you need to know:

Date: Thursday, Oct. 26

Times: 2:30 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Where to watch: If you can’t make it to the event, don’t worry we have you covered and you don’t even have to buy a ticket. Bookmark this site for the livestream.

Misc.: Yummy baseball-themed snacks will be provided.

When you attend the Town Hall or watch the livestream, be sure to wear your favorite Texas Rangers cap, shirt, socks or jersey. And why stop there? Wear your team’s gear (yes, you can wear something other than the Rangers if you want to) every day until the World Series ends.

We want to see you celebrate! Send us your pictures of you cheering them on, whether you are at the stadium or you are at a game-watching party at home. Email us at:  InternalCommunications@cookchildrens.org.

We want to see the world of the Texas Rangers through your eyes.

“Let’s go Rangers!”
