Roybal's ingenious Halloween costume and striking (-ish) resemblance to a miniature version of the Rangers manager led him to international acclaim in October 2010, along with an invitation from the team to announce "Play ball!" at Rangers Ballpark before Game 4 of the World Series. Now an 8-year-old in the third grade, Roybal seems much more comfortable with the fame that shaving the top of his head helped bring. And he's no less of a Rangers fan this season, WFAA in Dallas reports:
"That's the way baseball go."
Just like Big Wash might say. Who doesn't love this kid?
Also, who wouldn't love a pumpkin illuminated in Washington's likeness?
Gah! Please report all nightmares to BigLeagueStew@Yahoo.com.
In the meanwhile, shake for me, Wash!
