Kudos to the Texas Rangers!

No, not that kind of Ranger.

Yup, thems the ones

Kudos to the 2010 Texas Rangers.

Not for their AL West pennant win.

Not for their victory over the Rays in the ALDS.

But for their celebration afterward.

And here’s why…

After Tuesday night’s 5-1 American League Division Series-clinching victory, Hamilton was in the center of the action.

Left-hander C.J. Wilson and equipment manager Richard “Hoggy” Price supplied the team with bottles of ginger ale. The team waited for Hamilton to hit the clubhouse door and then doused him with the soft drink.

Being part of the postgame festivities meant everything to Hamilton, who battled alcohol and substance-abuse problems.

Ginger Ale!

That is a feel-good professional team story, if ever I heard one.

I sincerely hope the Rangers win the World Series. Just because of their “altered” celebration for one teammate. That is the definition of “team”.

That and I don’t want another Yankees-Phillies Fall Classic.
