Fans can go head-to-head with Rangers pitcher Dane Dunning in fantasy football this fall

Fantasy football season is here, and Rangers fans have an opportunity to play against one of their favorite players, Dane Dunning. Like last season with Kyle Gibson, Dane and Big League Impact are collaborating for a charity league that benefits MS Society, an organization dear to Dunning. “[Big League Impact] does a great job of helping me be able to guide myself through a season of all of the donations that I need and creating events and stuff and that for me.” You can find out more information on the MS Society, their mission, and how to get involved here.

Fans can register for the league here and learn more about the charity league including rules for the season and postseason. The winner receives a Championship ring, while the city winners get a championship belt, a VIP game experience that includes tickets to a regular season home game, and a chance to throw out the first pitch. Finally, the grand prize winner receives a trip for two to next year’s Spring Training in Surprise, Arizona, which includes a hotel for two nights, airfare, and tickets to a Rangers Spring Training game. While Dane reduced his fantasy teams last year (he had six weddings and four bachelor’s parties to attend), before, he had the fantasy football competitive spirit inside him. “I would hop in with like some teams, and I get pretty competitive. Usually, on Sundays, it’s laundry day [and] set up the whole thing. I have six TVs and six things and have each football game on. I’m sitting on the couch the entire day. Fantasy Football is always a good time.”

In February, Dane hosted a Twitch fundraiser stream that benefited MS Society and raised almost seventeen thousand dollars. The event included MLB players like current Ranger Mitch Garver, former Rangers Derek Holland and Hunter Pence, Lucas Giolito, Brett Phillips, Triston McKenzie, Jake Burger, and others. The event also included content streamers like LuLu Luvely, Aaron Chiz, and others. However, that was just the beginning for Dunning. He’s looking to make these events a reoccurring thing. “It’ll be a third annual coming up,” Dane told me. “We’re trying to get to try to use eSports arena [and] be able to make it a pretty big event. I’m trying to make it an annual thing every year to bring work on the MS Society, hopefully, create funds and find a cure.” Dunning targeted January, hopefully for the event. Therefore, Rangers fans, gamers, and everybody should be on the lookout for 2023.
