Additionally, on Wednesday, September 1, all MLB teams, including the Rangers, will wear gold wristbands and jersey ribbon decals in support of children battling cancer.
On Saturday, August 28, the Texas Rangers will host the second and final Bark at the Park event this season. This Saturday’s Bark at the Park, presented by Nylabone, Pet Pride, and Kroger, is sold out. Fans and furry friends that purchased tickets will have a dedicated seating section to watch the game.

On Monday, August 30, the Texas Rangers and Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation will recognize the 65th anniversary of the 1956 Mansfield school desegregation incident. This Civil Rights Movement saw three Black high school students courageously seeking justice and equality in education. The sole surviving member of the Mansfield Three, Pastor Floyd S. Moody, will throw the ceremonial first pitch before Monday night’s game against the Colorado Rockies.
Pastor Moody and the Ministers Justice Coalition of Texas will use the first pitch to spread their message, Project the Positivity, throughout North Texas. Beverly Lightfoot Moody, daughter of Pastor Moody, will sing the National Anthem alongside several members of the Ministers Justice Coalition of Texas choir. All proceeds from the 50/50 Texas Two Split Raffle will be donated to the Ministers of Justice non-profit organization CityEquity.org.
