The Texas Rangers enter play Wednesday alone in first place in the AL West by a half game, having taken the first two of a four-game set with the Houston Astros.
Their first-place takeover coincided with a team-wide fashion quirk inspired by slugger Mike Napoli: They’re all wearing American flag shorts with manager Jeff Banister’s #NeverEverQuit mantra printed on the side.
They’re really quite something, as shared by Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on Twitter:
Catcher Chris Gimenez, currently experiencing the most successful month or so of his major league career, was more visibly excited about the whole thing when speaking with Footer: "He’s been wearing his Boston ones around and nobody said anything, because they’ve got the American flag on them, so we know where he’s going there. He said he was having them all made for us with our slogan, and I think it’s solid. Everybody’s wearing them and it’s like the greatest thing, ever."
