I played catcher through high school in Garland at Lakeview Centennial, but I was most productive on the bench where I dreamed of playing catcher at UT. The one claim I can make to an interesting baseball event is that our Pony League team was one win from the Pony League World Series.

Simpson said that Yu Darvish, who was introduced Friday, was the main off-season target. ... Simpson said that he had reservations about signing Darvish until a long presentation in Fort Worth by club officials. As an oilman, he wanted to make sure that the Rangers wouldn't be wildcatting with Darvish but instead would get production. The front-office said the investment was sound. "I've got to support my guys," Simpson said.
