Travis Blackley Australia's first Texas Ranger

Travis Blackley's well travelled baseball career has added more pages to the history books for Australia as he became the first Aussie to play for the Texas Rangers on August 20, 2013. The left-handed pitcher started the game for the Rangers and he threw four innings in the Rangers 4-2 win over the Houston Astros. Blackley also becomes the first Australian to have played for both Texas Major League Baseball franchises.
