Hunter Pence is joining his hometown Texas Rangers in a bid to extend his major league career.

The Rangers announced the addition of the two-time World Series champ, to a minor league deal with a spring training invite, on Thursday morning. Pence responded to the news via his Twitter account:

While the two-time World Series winner, famous for “Champions Blood” speech, was an icon in the clubhouse, his value (on the field, at least) to the Giants had all but vanished. Pence played just 97 games last season, producing four home runs and a .590 OPS.

Pence played at Arlington High School and UT Arlington. He turns 36 in April.
