Arlington, TX—The Texas Rangers and @Rangers today announced details for the team’s 2013 Social Media Weekend, June 28-30 when the Cincinnati Reds come to Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.
The three days of activities will be highlighted by the return of #TexasTweetUp on Saturday, June 29. The event will take place for the second straight year and is a great opportunity for all social media-minded Rangers fans to participate in a special pregame program as well as attend that night’s Texas-Cincinnati game at 6:15 p.m. at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.
Space is limited for #TexasTweetUp and packages can be purchased on-line at texasrangers.com/texastweetup.
All fans who purchase the package will have access to an exclusive pregame #TexasTweetUp event in the Hall of Fame Theater from 4:15-5:15 p.m. Rangers radio broadcaster Matt Hicks (@radiohicksie) will host a roundtable discussion featuring members of the media who cover the team every day. There will be other special guests, including Rangers pitcher Robbie Ross (@Ross_108).
Of course, tweeting will be encouraged by all throughout the event!
The #TexasTweetUp package also includes a ticket to the Rangers-Reds game and a special edition #TexasTweetUp-themed promo item. Tickets for the pregame event are available for $39.00 and include a seat in the Upper Box for the game. Event-only passes are available for $15.00, but fans must have a ticket to the game. Event-only passes do not grant ballpark entry.

The Social Media Weekend activities begin on Friday, June 28 when the Rangers and Reds open their series at 7:05 p.m. Special baseballs stamped with @Rangers will be utilized for batting practice that day for both the Rangers and Reds.
