Tis the season for giving, and the Texas Rangers seeking help to provide underprivileged children in Tarrant County with Christmas gifts.
The Rangers are participating in the Cowboy Santas Toy Drive for the sixth consecutive year. Donations of unwrapped, new toys can be made Thursday through Dec. 13 at multiple venues, including the Grand Slam gift shop at Globe Life Park, the Rangers Fort Worth team shop (316 Main St.) and all Fort Worth fire and police departments.
The finale of the toy drive will be held Dec. 13 at Globe Life Park, where Rangers personalities will sign autographs, the Rangers KidsZone will be open and free ballpark tours will be given. The big guy himself, Santa Claus, will also appear.
For more information, call 817-273-5207 or visit texasrangers.com.
Also, the Rangers will hold a service of remembrance for former traveling secretary Chris Lyngos at 4 p.m. Thursday at the Jack Daniel's Club at Globe Life Park. Lyngos, a club employee for 22 years and traveling secretary from 1998 to 2014, passed away last week.
A family fund has been established through the Do It For Durrett Foundation, whose goal is helping area families affected by sudden loss. To make a donation, either visit doitfordurrett.com and indicate it is for the Lyngos Family Fund or send payment to:
