    Some may recall my brother is a 3rd year proball player, drafted and signed by the Texas Rangers, assigned to the minors.

    well he got the invite today to go play with the bigboys for a few preseason games......played a couple innings today hit a double.


    Goes to play the Brewers twice....Fri in Frisco and Sat in Arlington........Sat game says its televised.



    I think opportunity just started knocking...........

    Emerson Frostad........."little" brother is a relative term too :D

    Box score from Tues game against Padres.......he doubled off Greg Maddux. played some 1st base. Killer. Tonights game got rained out (bummer) tommorrw night a big one at home in Arlington, hope the weather holds I want to see him on TV........that'd be unreal. I still can't get a grip on it..... He'll be assigned to Double A in Frisco Texas but they want to get a look at him in front of the big league coaches, players and fans. See if he cracks I think.

    Any chance he will play for their 3A team which I believe is the Oklahoma City Redhawks? They have a kick ass stadium, I'm hoping to get to go to a game this year...........

    You never know with the game...........yes AAA is in OK. but hes already been assigned AA, but that can always change.



    Arrrrrgggggg....................CANNOT find any place that can broadcast DirecTV channel 667 here in Calgary. I believe thats the carrier for Ranger games. FSN SW.

    update '09............so this year he was officially invited to the big league spring training camp as a non-roster invitee. He called today and they said hes being assigned to AAA Oklahoma. now he's just a phone call away from the bigs.

    it is pretty cool. you know........sidetracking now.......sometimes I think its who you know as well. cause last 3 years now hes been living most offseason in Phoenix. and training with his buddy Justin Morneau, another canadian who happend to win the allstar homerun derby in '08 and the AL MVP in '06. so he gets a call from Justin to swing by his house on new years eve to pick up a signed bat for a charity thing here at home. but he walks in to the Justin party and BAM meets wayne gretzky and wife who live down the block, and some NBA superstar who lives near too...........:eek1:

    Typically if he made it all the way to the last game of te pre-season with the big boys, we won't see him here too long. They (Texas) seem to know what and who they want on their roster. This will probably be just some polishing work for him. We will be going to our first game of the season in a couple of weeks!!
