Longtime Texas Rangers Fan, Sister Frances, Dies at 90

The Texas Rangers announced Saturday that a huge fan of the team, Sister Frances Evans, died Friday night.

Sister Frances was best known for the drum that she would beat on while sitting right behind home plate.

The Texas Rangers released a statement saying in part...

"There was no more loyal and passionate Rangers' fan than Sister Frances, who began attending games when the franchise moved to Arlington in 1972 and was still coming to Globe Life Park over the last several years. She was joined by her dear friend, Sister Maggie Hession, who passed away in November 2013, for most of that span and the two became close acquaintances to club executives, managers, coaches, players, and everyone connected with the Rangers who had the fortune to know them."

Sister Frances was 90 years old. She would have turned 91 on July 31.
