Did you think as a Ranger fan that once Kyle Gibson left Texas, that’s the last chance you’ll have to interact with him? Well, think again. Big League Impact gives Rangers fans a chance to play fantasy football with Kyle and Rangers catcher, Jose Trevino and shortstop Isiah Kiner-Falefa. In addition, the weekly salary cap league powered by fantasy platform RealTime Sports will benefit charities that support individuals without reliable access to affordable, nutritious food.
“We know that our Rangers fans are looking for ways to be part of something bigger than themselves,” former Ranger, now Phillies’ pitcher, Kyle Gibson said. “Fantasy football is something fun we can do together to make that possible while also significantly and positively impacting the lives of people in need around the world.”
Big League Impact launched in 2013, out of St. Louis Cardinals pitcher and Big League Impact founder Adam Wainwright’s love for fantasy football and charity. As the organization enters the 2021 season, its vision has grown considerably, led directly by the players who support it. Still, its mission remains the same: to fight poverty through the platform of sports.
“Fantasy football is something I look forward to every year,” Wainwright says. “This is the event that started it all for Big League Impact, and it’s awesome to watch it grow and to know that we’re able to help more and more people in need every season.”

How it works:
Once you register and the season starts, you’ll play in a weekly head-to-head matchup featuring a weekly salary cap format on the RealTime Sports platform. You will get to play against either Gibson, Trevino, or Kiner-Falefa, and the registration entry and donations will go directly to the players’ charitable causes. Plus, every registration in the Texas league includes some Rangers gear, tickets to a future Rangers’ game, and a meet and greet with Jose and Isiah.
Participants have a chance to win exclusive and awesome prizes throughout the season, while the Grand Prize is a trip for two to 2022 Spring Training. For more information on registration gifts, prize levels, and rules or to register, please visit The Big League Impact Texas Rangers registration page. Trust me, these guys, they don’t mess around.
