Rangers' Equipment Truck Departs For Surprise

Loaded to the brim equipment and other accoutrements, the Rangers' truck left Texas on Wednesday



    The Texas Rangers’ equipment truck departed for Surprise, Arizona on Wednesday, carrying a load of stuff that goes way beyond mere baseball equipment--baseball equipment is a lot of it, of course, but with many of the Rangers’ taking their wives and kids with them, bats and balls are just the tip of an iceberg composed of a cornucopia of random stuff.

    Per an article on the team’s official website today, the haul runs the gamut from the obvious to, well, the not-so-obvious--for instance, the truck is carrying over $100,000 worth of baseballs as well as David Murphy’s daughter’s dollhouse; 300 pounds of powdered laundry detergent as well as kids’ bicycles; sunflower seeds, bubble gum and other snacks, as well as an X-Ray machine.

    "We have bicycles, kids' playground equipment, we're even taking water coolers for the Minor Leagues," equipment manager Richard Price said. "We're taking our own supply of coffee."

    The truck and all its various cargo is schedule to make it to Surprise on Friday morning.
