The Rangers would not let a player wear uniform No. 69

If you’ve ever been a teenager — and if, like me, you’ve refused to grow up — you’ll know that the number 69 is a running joke, for reasons we don’t necessarily need to get into to preface this article.

Answering Rangers fans’ questions, Levi Weaver of WFAA Sports reports that a Rangers player asked about wearing uniform No. 69 but was told no, depriving baseball fans everywhere of yet another opportunity to respond “nice” to an otherwise innocent news item.

That’s just disappointing.
