Baseball, Not Just Their Eye on The Ball



Baseball parks all over the country donned pink bats to "Go to Bat Against Breast Cancer" in celebration of Mother's Day.



Meet Some More Texas Rangers-Did I mention they are in 1st Place?





Nelson Cruz- Nelson started out with the Brewers in 2005 has been a Ranger since 2006.. He is a right fielder. He has hit 7 homeruns and has a .270 batting average and has stolen 4 bases.Nelson ... he's confidence, calm," Texas manager Ron Washington said. "He has just been what Nelson is and what he can be. He's very confident. He's kicked some rear. If we can keep him in that confident mode, we will be in great shape."

Matt Harrison- Matt has been with the Rangers since 2008. He is a left handed pitcher.Harrison is now 4-2 with a 4.23 ERA on the year and 13-5 with a 5.05 ERA in 22 starts since being called up from the Minor Leagues on July 8 last season. Over the past 98 seasons, going back to 1911, Harrison is the only Major League left-handed pitcher to record 12 victories in his first 22 career starts.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia- Jarrod came to us from the Atlanta Braves in 2007. He is an awesome catcher with an Considering his eye problems this last weekend; last night, Salty was responsible for blocking pitches in the dirt, especially with Wilson on the mound in extra innings. Saltalamacchia, in the 10th inning with the go-ahead run on third base, twice blocked wicked pitches in the dirt that kept the Mariners from taking the lead.

Chris Davis- Chris came to the Rangers in 2008. He plays 1st Base. He bats left and throws right. Played with a pink bat on Sunday. Sure, Davis wanted to celebrate Mother's Day, but he also hoped to smooth out his swing, no matter the color of his bat. Pink bats have become annual Mother's Day symbols as part of an overall "Going to Bat Against Breast Cancer" initiative by Major League Baseball that raises awareness about breast cancer and directs proceeds to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. He had a double and a homerun with that bat against White Sox. Maybe he is on to something.
