Outfielder Jared Hoying, who went 4-for-4 including his first MLB home run on Wednesday night, joined THE FAN to talk about the team’s new move reminiscent of ‘the claw’ and ‘the antlers’ during the AL Championship seasons.

“It just means Texas. This is us, the Texas Rangers. The name on the front that matters.” Hoying even called out Rougned Odor’s affection for ‘the swipe.’

“Rougie is very intense when he swipes his chest. It’s one of those things where it’s a proud moment for everybody when they get on base. Swipe the ole’ chest for Texas.”
