ARLINGTON — The offseason weekend that culminates with Fan Fest is always good for the beat writers, and if they were to be polled confidentially, they’d admit they missed it.
The Rangers last held Fan Fest in 2020, just before a virus shut down the world as everyone knew it.
MLB and the players didn’t help in 2022, as things were trying to get back to normal. The lockout knocked out any plans the Rangers had of reviving the annual mid-winter baseball festival.
Saturday was a reflection of what once was in the DFW baseball sphere, with Rangers fans roaming the home ballpark and standing in long lines for player autographs. The media, meanwhile, got its news-hungry hands on club officials and players.
Among them were two hitters who just might be the key to the Rangers’ lineup. No, not Corey Seager and Marcus Semien (though Seager did talk to the media).
