Texas Rangers set record with Triple Play fundraiser

🕐 1 min read

Sunday’s 2019 Park Place Dealerships Texas Rangers Triple Play Game Show Spectacular established a record for gross receipts with a total of $770,000 raised, the Rangers announced May 6.

Over $225,000, also a record, was raised in the live and silent auctions. The highest amount in the live auction was two $31,000 bids for a private jet trip accompanied by Hall of Famer Ivan Rodriguez to see the Rangers play in Anaheim against the Angels.

The event, which took place at the Hilton Anatole Dallas, was a complete sellout. The net proceeds of Triple Play benefit the programs and projects of the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation.

The entire Rangers’ team was in attendance for the event, which also featured the players competing in a pair of game shows, Fielders Feud and Heads Up.

The Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of children in need within our community, and provides funding for children, the military and first responders and their families, educational, health, and athletic programming and partnerships.

Since its inception in 1991, the Foundation has invested more than $30 million to help children through support of programs including the Texas Rangers MLB Youth Academy at Mercy Street Sports Complex, presented by Toyota, youth fitness and wellness programs, scholarships, and summer programming for children in challenging circumstances, the Rangers said.
