Arlington, Texas— The Texas Rangers and Comerica Bank have partnered to launch the second annual “Comerica Call-Up” contest.

As a continuation of the 2020 “Rally Back” contest, which helped businesses overcome struggles induced by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Rangers and Comerica Bank will once again help women-owned and minority-owned small businesses across the community.

To enter, eligible businesses located within a 50-mile radius of Globe Life Field must submit a video or essay answering the following questions:

  • Why should the Texas Rangers choose you?
  • Why is your business valuable to your community and the Rangers community, highlighting the struggles and obstacles the business has overcome to successfully grow?
  • What would a marketing partnership with the Rangers mean to your business?

Entries will be judged on the expression of the obstacles the business has overcome and the support and value the business adds to its community. The panel will also consider originality and creativity, and connection and experience with the Texas Rangers.

Following the conclusion of the initial entry period on Saturday, July 31, the top three selected entries will be invited to Globe Life Field to pitch their business to the panel of judges, including Rangers’ executives, player alumni, and a Comerica representative.

The grand prize winner will receive advertising and marketing support on the Rangers’ social channels, on the Rangers Radio Network, and in the Rangers’ 2022 game program, as well as four tickets to a 2022 Rangers game at Globe Life Field and a private suite night provided by Comerica Bank.

The second and third place finalists will be recognized in a Rangers social post and receive four tickets to a 2022 Rangers game at Globe Life Field.

The 2020 “Rally Back” contest grand prize winner, District Barbershop, and two runners-up, RLC Diversity and Precious Petals, will be recognized on Saturday, June 26, when the Rangers face the Kansas City Royals.
