The Texas Rangers will be the third baseball team to give away wrestling masks this season. The Cubs and Diamondbacks have already done it, and the masks those teams gave away looked a bit more elaborate than a large swimming cap with holes in it like the one pictured above.

On Saturday night in Arlington, it’ll be 13 and under. And perhaps that’s the best route to take, as sitting next to some dude slamming beers and wearing a wrestling mask is a mortal lock to incite a spirited, over-the-row battle royal in the stands.
