Rangers, Cubs Prospects to Play For Charity

You'd be hard pressed to find two MLB teams with more potential starpower in the minor leagues than the Texas Rangers and Chicago Cubs. Two young (relatively) whiz kid general managers, each with a primo power-hitting prospect, and a lot of other big names will settle whose is better on the field in Arizona later this month with a portion of the proceeds benefitting charity.

The Rangers normally close out spring training with a prospect game to reward some of the brighter young stars who succeed in spring training, but have decided to try something new with the Cubs this year, as reported by The Dallas Morning News.

The game will take place on March 30 in Mesa, Arizona, and tickets will go for $6, with portions of the gate benefitting Rangers and Cubs charities. The Rangers' charity that will benefit will be the Dane McDonald Safe at Home Foundation, named after the son of Rangers Arizona Rookie League hitting coach Donzell McDonald, and also the nephew of Cubs Mental Skills Program Coordinator Darnell McDonald.
