Take me out to the ... hockey game?
It's not quite time for Major League Baseball spring training, but the Dallas Stars paid homage to the Texas Rangers before Saturday night's game against the Winnipeg Jets by wearing special Rangers-themed jerseys during their pregame warmup.
The jerseys, blue with the Rangers' traditional "Texas" crest arched across the front, included each player's name and number in the Rangers font. They also featured a red and white Stars logo and the Rangers alternate Texas flag logo on the shoulders. Each warmup-worn jersey will be auctioned off by The Hangar to raise money for the Dallas Stars Foundation.
Before the game, Rangers slugger Joey Gallo, second baseman Rougned Odor and outfielder Delino DeShields read the Stars' starting lineup in the dressing room and participated in a ceremonial puck drop at center ice.
