Texas Rangers Fan Fest 2012

9 Jan

Attention Rangers Fans!! We’ve got the inside scoop on how you can enjoy a weekend of fun up-close and personal time with America’s AL Champions. Texas Rangers Fan Fest is January 13-15 at the Arlington Convention Center – similar to Winterfest where we celebrate Champs, but just of a different sport. Not to mention a little further away from the official start of the season. At Fan Fest Rangers fans can get autographs from both past and present players, participate in Q&A sessions, take a photograph with the 2011 AL Championship trophy and shop for Ranger merchandise and memorabilia. There will even be awesome Rangers Minor League, Spring Training and team history displays. For the kids Ranger Fan Fest provide batting cages, an indoor ballpark, stealing home and even the luxury of clocking the speed of their pitch. Find out more about some of the interactive activities planned for Ranger fans at this year’s Fan Fest. Put them in a jersey doing all this and they’ll feel like a real Texas Ranger!

Admission to 2012 Ranger Fan Fest is about 20 bucks. An individual Day pass for a Child is $10 and $20 for Adults, while 3-Day passes are $50 (Adult) and $20 (Kids). Purchase your tickets right here! Unfortunately the 50 autograph fast passes have already been bought up.
