The Rangers announced the decision Sunday ... unveiling "Charley Pride Field" at the official Rangers spring training complex in Surprise, Arizona.

“Introducing Charley Pride Field! You are greatly missed,” the team said in a statement.

Pride -- a Country Music Hall of Fame inductee and 3x Grammy award winner who was nominated 13 times -- died December 12, 2020 from complications related to COVID-19 at the age of 86.

"Who owned part of the team." Which part, the locker room? The pitchers? He was part owner. Nice gesture by the Rangers. At least they can be proud of something in Arlington, because it's damn sure not the baseball team.
