Rangers Get New Song PDF Print E-mail

ARLINGTON, Texas -- That's the Way Baseball Go, a new song dedicated to Rangers Manager Ron Washington, was introduced before Friday's game at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

The song is a modification of the 1983 Merle Haggard Grammy Award-winning #1 hit That's the Way Love Goes and was the idea of Texas Rangers Co-Chairman Bob R. Simpson. Mr. Simpson and his wife, Janice with the assistance of Jim Hodges and Jackson Yandell of Fort Worth, wrote the lyrics to That's the Way Baseball Go. The song was recorded by Merle Haggard last month at his ranch in Redding, CA.

Mr. and Mrs. Simpson, who have been working on this project for the last several months, have provided all of the funding for the production of That's the Way Baseball Go and undertook the project as a tribute to Ron Washington and all Rangers fans.

That's the Way Baseball Go will be available for download in the near future. The Simpsons' share of the proceeds from the downloads will go to the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation. Information can also be found on texasrangers.com/foundation.

The song, which is 2:59 in length, was introduced on the Rangers video boards prior to Friday's game. Mr. and Mrs. Simpson also presented Washington with a framed copy of the original lyrics during a pre-game ceremony.
