The 2009 Sluggers of
the West Awards Dinner is in less than two weeks, and as they have done in the
past, the Rangers are extending a special for the Newberg Report community to


The event, which benefits
the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation, is on Friday, January 23, at Eddie Deen’s
Ranch just south of downtown Dallas,
starting at 6:30 p.m.  If you’re
interested in attending, and sitting with fellow Newberg Report readers, call
Karin Morris at 817-436-5933 – you’ll get the season ticket holder price of $40
per ticket (or $400 per table), discounted from the $50 price ($500 per table)
that non-season ticket holders pay to attend. 


The purchase of a
table includes a Rangers celebrity (and guest) at your table, so if you want to
round up a group of eight – I know in the past folks have put together a group
on our message board – you’re assured of having a Rangers representative and
guest seated with you.

the community, which we’ve talked about a bunch this off-season.
