Hey guys, I figured it's about time I finally introduce myself to you. My name's Herbie Pallotta and I handle all of the social media for the Texas Rangers and also hold the Fan Ambassador position which was created last year as a contact between the fans and the front office. I just moved down here in December from Pittsburgh but I've been reading these boards for going on two years now.
I know Chuck Morgan has a very strong presence on here, and pretty much anywhere he goes based on those almost 1100 Twitter followers in the first 24 hours (almost Charlie Sheen numbers). I want to be an additional contact in the front office for all of you. I know most of your usernames, stories, social security numbers, etc. simply from reading all of your comments.
I'm on Facebook and Twitter (@herbiepallotta) and am more than happy to answer any questions you guys may have. My number at the office is 817-273-5075 and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll usually respond to you within about 5 minutes no matter which method you choose.
Once the season starts I'm going to be utilizing all of the Rangers social media outlets for promotions, discounts, giveaways etc. As Chuck said, we're going to have the ability to use Twitter on the scoreboard during the game but that's just the beginning. It's going to be a new thing for the organization and I hope that you guys can all be a part of it.
Feel free to contact me any time and I look forward to actually meeting some of you the next time there's another LSB suite night.
