Country Weekly Gets Charley Pride ‘Up to Bat’

Country Weekly & Pride Team For Autographed Baseball Giveaway
Nashville, Tenn (March 23, 2011) –
Country Music Hall of Famer and Texas Rangers owner 
Charley Pride is teaming up with Country Weekly to give away autographed baseballs.  
 Pride has a stronger tie to 
baseball than most of his music
fans might think. In 1953, Pride
was signed to the New York
Yankees farm team where he was
known for his fastball.  He went on to become a Negro American League All-Star for the Memphis Red Sox.  A career-ending injury forced Pride to hang up his glove, and thus began his GRAMMY 
Award-winning music career.  
But his love for the game has never 
faded, and in 2010 Pride became
part owner of the Texas Rangers.
  
Pride recently released his first studio album in five years, Choices (Music City Records), on March 8.
