New Texas Ranger manager Jeff Banister was introduced today at a press conference at the Ballpark. I'd been hoping that someone would put up a transcript of the press conference that I could link this afternoon, but that hasn't happened yet.
However, Banister apparently also talked to some Ranger employees today after the press conference, and the great Chuck Morgan, for one, came away impressed:
@Bannyrooster28 just spoke to our employees.Again after listening to him, I wish Opening Day was tomorrow. i'm ready to run thru a wall.— Chuck Morgan (@TEXPAMAN) October 17, 2014
I may have to go to a batting cage tonight to hit some baseballs. I can't wait for baseball. Rangers you are going to like @Bannyrooster28— Chuck Morgan (@TEXPAMAN) October 17, 2014
