A heavenly day at the ballpark

Stranger’s kindness makes granddaughter’s first Texas Rangers game even more memorable.

ARLINGTON, Texas — In my family, major milestones include births, weddings, baptisms — and one’s first time to attend a Texas Rangers game.

I’ve followed Rangers baseball — through pulse-pounding wins and heart-wrenching losses — for 40 years.

With my 15-month-old granddaughter, Norah.

I still chuckle at the intro to his devo No. 60 on listening to God: “Don’t you hate it when you’re talking to someone, and you can tell they’re not listening? Some people are just naturally bad about this. It took me 18 years, but I learned to never ask my dad anything while the Rangers are on because he gets twice as into them as I do. Yes, that is actually possible.”

Suffice it to say that even before the most amazing thing happened (seriously, stay tuned for an incredible story!), I was excited about my 15-month-old granddaughter’s first Rangers game.
