Author Note: I can’t watch the Rangers game, so I am reposing this. I wrote it and thought it was fun. No one read it. The playoffs make you think of the past so for fun of all the past Rangers who would be my dream team. These are who I chose. Who would you choose?
I am on Twitter, and one of my favorite all-time ballplayers, Frank Catalanotto, retweets from a Blue Jays fan.
“Can we re-sign
@RoyHalladay and @fcat27 to a single day contract and have them throw/see a single pitch so that they get a ring soon too?”
I saw that, and my brown eyes turned green and my Ranger fandom cried out, oh no, sorry Jays fan, if Frank is going to get a ring, it’s going to be a Ranger ring. He was a Ranger for a long time, and he came back to the Rangers after he left the Blue Jays.
Doesn’t he looks good in a Rangers uniform?
Then I thought, who would be in my Field of Dreams? I am standing in Iowa in a cut- down cornfield. Who would be my Ranger Dream Team? To play in a World Series game, to get a Ranger ring?

If I am having a Field of Dreams World Series Ranger Edition, there is only one pitcher:
Oh, my bench is impressive, too. Full of happy memories.
Tell me, who would be in your Field of Dreams?
