ARLINGTON, Texas — Give
Texas Rangers public-address announcer Chuck Morgan bonus points for his sense of timing.
In the middle of the fourth inning of Friday's Rangers game against the Mariners, Morgan made the announcement at Rangers Ballpark that many there might not have known — suspect No. 2 in the Boston marathon bombing had been captured.
The news was met with a huge ovation at Rangers Ballpark and Morgan followed that up by playing "Sweet Caroline," which is a staple at Boston's Fenway Park.
Morgan had toyed with the idea of doing something during the game and then was encouraged by his Twitter followers once the game started.
"I was reading my tweets and the fans were asking me to do something so I answered their requests," Morgan said. "Watching the news reports all day, I was already thinking of doing something. I had 'Sweet Caroline' ready for the right moment."
