Although the eighth largest crowd in history attended opening day, I got to watch the Texas Rangers online for the start of the 2010 season. And as any Ranger fan will attest to, this was definitely a nail biter since Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Shaun Marcum had a no-hit bid running for six innings.
But I got to see Ranger great Vladimir Guerrero dash any of Marcum’s hopes when he hit a three-run homer in the seventh. The rallying Rangers were trailing by just a run in the bottom of the ninth when they accomplished crossing two over the plate for a 5-4 walk-off victory before more than 50,000 loyal fans on opening day at the Ballpark in Arlington.
Besides Guerrero’s heroics, a standing room only capacity crowd roared in utter glee when Jarrod Saltalamacchia tagged one with one out and the bases loaded into right-center field to drive in the winning run. He had the count at 2-2. He obviously got a slider that he liked and with the Blue Jays playing in, Saltalamacchia drove the ball well out of reach of anybody allowing David Murphy, pinch-running for Guerrero who had an infield hit earlier, to prance across the plate.
You could be watching all this action if you get a hold of this wonderful software I found. There is a version for either Mac or PC, so everyone will benefit by downloading it from the Internet. You can then easily install and easily operate it providing live streaming video online of any Rangers game that is televised. Your ticket for the best seat in the house is a high-speed Internet connection through either cable or DSL.
This is a fabulous feature for people who travel a bit. Install the software on your laptop so wherever you roam you can always watch some great Texas Ranger action as long as you have access to high-speed Internet. Nowadays, this type of connection is found in many places including coffee shops, fast food restaurants, cafés and hotels.
