Texas Rangers First Intrasquad Game Set
SURPRISE, Ariz.– We have waited 154 days to see the Texas Rangers play baseball. That ends today when the club plays their first intrasquad game of Spring Training! That is if the weather permits.
It rained during practice on Saturday, but that didn’t stop the Rangers.
They just headed to the covered batting cages.
Today’s intrasquad game is scheduled to start around 12:30 p.m. MST. Twelve starting pitchers are scheduled to throw one inning each in the intrasquad game with relief pitchers scheduled for Monday’s game.

If the weather holds up for the Rangers to get at least half of the scheduled 6 innings I’ll be happy. But, this is what Weather.com shows for today in Surprise:
At least the flood warning isn’t until 5pm, right? I’m just happy that the possibility of having a score card by the end of today is REAL.
