Texas Rangers Pay Tribute to Late Charley Pride

With less than two weeks away from major league baseball’s opening day, the Texas rangers have paid tribute to country legend the late Charley Pride. The Rangers announced earlier this week that they will rename their spring training complex in Surprise, Arizona to “Charley Pride Field”. This posthumous honor comes just 3 months after the country music hall of famer died from complications related to covid-19, at the age of 86. Pride was a part owner of the Texas Rangers since 2010 and was a frequent visitor to the Rangers spring training facility.
