DALLAS - Fans of Buckner International and of the Texas Rangers cheered on the American League West division champions Saturday for the afternoon game against the Seattle Mariners, broadcasted nationally on FOX Sports.
Buckner was featured in the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation/FOX Sports Southwest/TXA 21 “Community Corner.” Four hundred and eighty tickets in the Buckner block were sold and 250 children from Buckner Dallas foster care and community programs attended the game.
