The Texas Rangers – Perrenial American League Pennant Contender

A resident of Rockwall, Texas, Chuck Scroggs enjoys a variety of outdoor activities, including fishing, skiing, and hunting. Chuck Scroggs is also a Major League Baseball fan, who supports the Texas Rangers. Over the past several years, the Rangers have become a perennial contender for the American League pennant. The team played in the World Series in both 2010 and 2011, although it didn’t succeed in winning either series. In 2013, the Rangers had a relatively disappointing year and fell a game short of a wild card berth in the playoffs.

The Rangers have enjoyed a consistent first half of the 2014 season, battling it out with the Oakland A’s for first place. The team benefits from an excellent farm system that continues to produce top-tier prospects. These include Jorge Alfaro, who has been picked as one of the leading players with Major League star potential. In addition to possessing outstanding batting skills, he is an excellent defensive player, who has one of the strongest arms among young catchers. This skill is particularly sought after, as it limits the ability of runners to take leads effectively and steal bases.
