It’s amazing,” Rangers center fielder Julio Borbon said. “It’s so big for us as far as our team chemistry just being able to enjoy being around each other and supporting each other.”

What started out as an in-house gesture among players has quickly morphed into the latest and quirkiest calling card in the league, a spot some would say has been held down by Anaheim’s jumping monkey since its appearance in the 2002 World Series.

Should a Texas player do something positive offensively he’ll acknowledge his feat with a “claw,” fingers slightly curled with his arm extended in a rising swoop. The “antlers” — hold both hands open above the ears to imitate a deer — come about after something speed-related.

“Because when a deer gets going that’s what you look like when you run all the way from first to third and then beat out a throw at the plate,” Borbon said.
