Texas Rangers Discourage Fans from Doing the Wave with Humorous Message
The Texas Rangers have become one of the most fan-friendly organizations since new owners took over last year. They’ve broken a Guinness World Record for fans wearing sunglasses at night, and Nolan Ryan has reimbursed fans for some of their expenses. They’re now trying to cater to the fans by discouraging the wave. No joke. Check out this message that made the scoreboard at the ballpark and Rangers telecast according to Stop the Wave:
Even though the message is clearly in jest, it was done as a response to fans who were complaining. Chuck Morgan, the Rangers’ senior vice president for ballpark entertainment, explained the message. “I was getting lots of emails and Tweets from fans during the game asking me to do something to stop the wave. So I said, ‘Let’s see if we can have fun with it.”
Well played Morgan, well played. Now if we could just get him to address all the beach balls at Dodger Stadium and fans running onto the field, then I’ll be satisfied.
