So today, I have two for you. Rangers. Texas Rangers. Truly – that is what both of my groups are called.
- Texas Rangers – the law enforcement group
- Texas Rangers – the baseball team
Texas Rangers – Law Enforcement
There is an excellent museum in Waco about the Texas Rangers. It has informative and interesting displays about the men who have served in this difficult role from its inception in 1823. The Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum covers the history of this group and includes exhibits of artifacts and interesting cases. There are weaponry displays and information on some of the movies that have features Rangers. It is a museum that will take a couple of hours to go through, longer if you have an interest in law enforcement or weapons. Paying tribute to those who have lost their lives in the line of duty is one of the more poignant sections of this museum.
The museum hosts educational activities throughout the year and two of our girls were able to participate in a forensics class put on by the museum. We have visited the Ranger museum several times and enjoy it each time.
Texas Rangers – Major League Baseball
I did not know much about baseball when I met my husband. I came from an area that did not have baseball. Something I found out early on was that he and his grandad enjoyed baseball. A lot. That has petered out over the years, especially since his grandad passed away, but I still enjoy going to a baseball game every once in a while. One of the first times I visited my husband’s grandparents was when they bought us tickets to a Rangers game. It was so much fun! I have enjoyed baseball since then, though we seldom catch a game anymore. We have taken the girls to a baseball game but we could not afford the Rangers tickets so we went to the Rough Riders, which is a minor league team. They have gone up in price so much that it is definitely a major special occasion to go. Which is sad because it was such a lovely park and such fun to watch the players. Still, Texas Rangers baseball is a fun thing to do if you have the opportunity.
