The Rangers may know how to steal bases but Darnell Stole my Heart
His name is Darnell McDonald and NO he's not Irish. Well, I really don't know if he is or not. But Darnell was born in Fort Collins, Colorado in 1978....same year my son was born. He attended and graduated from Cherry Creek High School near Denver. He had aspirations of college but was signed right out of high school...drafted by the O's and worked his way up through the minors to the majors. While he was there, McDonald only hit .156 in 32 at bats (17 games). YEP...that's it. Next stop was the Indians....trouble followed and I don't feel it necessary to go there...He jumped around till he finally landed at the Red's and made his first home run in the majors last August....which leads us to this season when the Red Sox picked him up.
And last night...Darnell captured every single Red Sox fan's heart.
Yeah, the Rangers took our field by storm, stealing every base they could...making the Old Man look a fool...but the joke was on them when Darnell came to bat. (stole pic off of SG and have NO clue where they got it from..apologies to the photographer)
