They round up the best nine ballplayers in attendance and wager a pick-up game ... :whome:

They sign autographs, talk to fans, etc.

I'm not sure, but judging by the listing on texasrangers.com, it might be a media-only event :mad:

 

You guys in Longview need to monitor your newspaper & report to us Tyler people !!

Cheapy, the directions are fine except that 271 doesn't go into Longview. It goes into Gladewater. Also, FM 2275 aka Vesta, is more commonly known as George Richie. That may help.
