LETTER FROM THE

President and General Manager

Baseball is back! After over 600 days since the last Round Rock Express game, we so excited to welcome you back to Dell Diamond. Along with the rest of the world, our entire staff has pivoted these last 19 months to bring over 40 socially distant events to our Round Rock community. From concerts and movie nights to Bulls in the Ballpark with Rodeo Austin and hosting Round Rock Hairy Men baseball in the Texas Collegiate League, it has been our pleasure to know that Dell Diamond could provide families a place to safely gather during such unprecedented times. However, we are ready to get back to what we do best – bring joy to others through Round Rock Express baseball! Not only are we excited to once again welcome you back to Dell Diamond, but also welcome the Texas Rangers back to our baseball family. In February, we officially accepted the invitation to become the new Triple-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers by signing Major League Baseball’s Professional Development License, which will keep Rangers Triple-A baseball in Round Rock through the 2030 season. We are thrilled to reunite with the Rangers after spending eight season as their top affiliate from 2011-2018. As always, your safety and wellbeing is our top priority. We have worked diligently with Major League Baseball, Williamson County and the City of Round Rock to open Dell Diamond at an increased capacity for the 2021 season with enhanced health, safety and ticketing procedures. As mandated by MLB, a player safety buffer zone will be enforced in the outfield berm areas surrounding both bullpens as well as the player walkway between the clubhouses and

playing surface in left field. Physical distancing will be required and enforced at ingress, egress and while fans are in line for concessions and merchandise. Dell Diamond is now a clear bag venue and is striving to operate as a cashless facility, instead preferring credit cards and gift cards for payment at all storefronts, including the Railyard Team Store and parking lot. Furthermore, Dell Diamond is a non-smoking and non-vaping facility. A designated smoking area is available outside the Home Plate Gate. In order to eliminate shared touchpoints, we are also moving forward with digital tickets and parking passes that you can either print at home or save to your mobile device to be scanned at entry. For a full outline of our increased safety measures, please visit RRExpress.com/Safety. We sincerely hope that your time at the ballpark is as enjoyable as possible as we continue to enjoy the return of Express baseball. If there is ever anything that either of us or any member of our staff can do to enhance your experience at Dell Diamond, please let us know.

We’re proud to have financially supported the following organizations in the past year to help further their goals of serving in action.


Covering Home, presented by Ashley HomeStore, is a community volunteer initiative comprised of Round Rock Express ownership and staff. Built on an Express Core Value of "passionately participating in the community," we instill in our employees that the platform of baseball should be used as a vehicle for service. Covering Home was initially launched in early 2016 to offer ownership, staff, players and coaches opportunities to give back to the community at least twelve times a year. By choosing a new organization or cause with whom to partner each month, volunteers can participate in initiatives that are important to them. The Round Rock Express and Ashley HomeStore will work together to donate time and resources to local organizations that better the community we call home.

BASEBALL IS BACK

I

t’s baseball time in Round Rock! The Round Rock Express have officially accepted their invitation to become the new Triple-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers after signing Major League Baseball’s Professional Development License (PDL). The 10-year agreement will keep Rangers Triple-A baseball in Round Rock through the 2030 season. will keep Rangers Triple-A baseball. “We are so excited to sign the PDL and formally accept the Texas Rangers invitation to become their new Triple-A affiliate,” Express President Chris Almendarez said. “We have an outstanding history with the Rangers organization and can’t wait to see the next wave of talent come through Round Rock.” The Express are reuniting with the Rangers after spending eight

seasons as the club’s top affiliate from 2011-2018. Round Rock was previously a member of the Houston Astros organization from 2019-2020. This offseason, Major League Baseball (MLB) restructured the Minor League Baseball (MiLB) system following the expiration of the Professional Baseball Agreement (PBA) between the two entities last September. Round Rock’s first stint as Texas’ Triple-A affiliate came during one of the most successful periods in Rangers franchise history, as the club posted back-to-back World Series appearances during a span in which it advanced to the Postseason in five of seven seasons. During that time, Round Rock helped develop 43 Major Leaguers, including Hanser Alberto, Willie Calhoun, Delino DeShields, Ronald Guzman, Isiah Kiner-Falefa, Leonys Martin, Nomar Mazara,

Martin Perez, Drew Robinson and Tomas Telis. The Express advanced to the Pacific Coast League playoffs twice as a Rangers affiliate, first in 2011 before coming within a game of capturing the league title in 2015. “The Texas Rangers are thrilled to have Round Rock as our Triple-A partner going forward,” Rangers Assistant General Manager Mike Daly said. “We have a wonderful history with the Express and strong relationships with their leadership group. We are fortunate future Rangers will play in front of great fans at Dell Diamond and be part of the Central Texas community on their way to Arlington.” Under the new PDL structure, MiLB will feature 120 teams competing across four levels, Triple-A, Double-A, High-A and Low-A, a change from the previous structure that included 160 clubs


competing across six levels. The Rangers farm system is rounded out by the Double-A Frisco (TX) RoughRiders, High-A Hickory (NC) Crawdads and Low-A Down East (Kinston, NC) Wood Ducks. The 2021 campaign marks Round Rock’s 21st season of professional baseball in Central Texas. The club was founded as a Double-A franchise in 2000 by Ryan Sanders Baseball, now Ryan Sanders Sports & Entertainment, a group made up of Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan, his sons Reid and Reese, Houston businessman Don Sanders and his sons, Bret and Brad. After five prosperous seasons as a member of the Double-A Texas League, the Express joined the Triple-A Pacific Coast League in 2005, where the club has competed for the last 15 seasons.

RS3 Strategic Hospitality Unveils Dell Diamond Storefront Upgrades RS3 Strategic Hospitality, the official hospitality provider of the Round Rock Express, has unveiled revamped operations for the 2021 baseball season at Dell Diamond, focusing on renovated storefronts, new menu options, technology enhancements and safe dining measures for fans attending games this season. Storefronts Several new storefronts will make their debuts at Dell Diamond in 2021, including a pair of Goodstock Grill by Nolan Ryan locations. The left field concourse location will feature the Knife & Fork Chili Cheese Dog, the Black and Blue Burger, complete with charred jalapeños, bacon mix and blue cheese sauce served on a gourmet bun, and The Burger So Good It Has No Name, a delicious Nolan Ryan Beef burger topped with picked peppers, balsamic onions and horseradish chive cheese packed between a gourmet bun. Goodstock’s first base location behind Section 123 will feature the Goodnight Melt, a Nolan Ryan Beef burger on Texas toast with cheddar cheese, pulled pork and bacon. Three area favorites have also joined the fray for 2021. Chick-fil-A is now operating a storefront behind Section 111 while Tony C’s Pizza will be serving up pizza, pepperoni rolls and Italian sausage subs behind Section 113. The everpopular Southside Market & Barbeque storefront has also moved into a newly renovated location behind Section 117 with several new menu items on the way. RS3 Strategic Hospitality’s Ono Pacific Grill, located behind Section 112, will debut a refreshed menu in 2021, loaded with Mahalo Mac, which consists of chef’s hatch macaroni and cheese topped with pineapple and mango salsa, pulled pork, avocado crema and red jalapeños, as well as Po-tot-chos, tater tots served with queso, pulled pork, red jalapeños, scallions and sour cream. Also joining the menu at Ono is the Polynesian Philly, stacked with lemongrass marinated steak, julienne onions and peppers, pepper jack cheese and sriracha aioli, and the Portobello Philly, including grilled portobello, julienne onions and peppers, pepper jack cheese and sriracha aioli. Several fan-favorites are back in 2021, including Brew at the Rock Beer Garden near the left field foul pole, Scoops Ice Cream behind Section 115,

Fairlane’s Diner and Coop & Kennel at the Home Plate Gate, Rojo’s Southwestern Hideaway behind Section 121, Frank’s Hot Dogs behind Section 125 and the Bullpen Bar by Dripping Springs Vodka in right field. Fairlane’s features new cotton candy and key lime milkshakes, while Rojo’s is adding a brisket quesadilla to the fold and Frank’s is excited to unveil a new Chicago Dog. Cashless Transactions Dell Diamond is striving to operate as a cashless facility with contactless payment options for all food, beverage, merchandise, parking and ticket purchases. In addition to traditional swipe and chip credit card options, all permanent storefronts will offer tap or scan payment options, as well as Apple, Google and Samsung Pay. The Round Rock Express will also be offering loaded tickets, giving fans the ability to load money onto digital game tickets. Mobile Ordering New in 2021, fans in the seating bowl will have the option to order select food and beverage items directly to their seats through the sEATz app. Fans can download the app directly to their smartphone, create an account and purchase select food and beverage items which can then be delivered to their seat location. Those enjoying Express baseball from the outfield berms can also use the sEATz app to order select food and beverage items to be picked up at a contactless window outside the Bullpen Bar by Dripping Springs Vodka. Safe Dining Protocols To help protect fans while purchasing food and beverages on Express gamedays, all RS3 Strategic Hospitality employees will continue to wear masks and gloves. Signage reminding fans to maintain proper social distancing will also be visible at all storefronts. Where applicable, menu items will come in single-serve packaging and all party and group hospitality areas will feature single-serve options instead of buffet-style offerings. Hand sanitizer and hand washing stations will be widely available throughout Dell Diamond and all storefronts will be cleaned and disinfected at regular intervals using processes and products approved by the CDC and EPA for use against COVID-19. RS3 Strategic Hospitality currently operates the food and beverage services at nine other facilities in Texas, including Circuit of the Americas, Germania Insurance Amphitheater, Jimmy Clay Golf Course and Roy Kizer Golf Course in Austin, H-E-B Center in Cedar Park, Comerica Center in Frisco, Brushy Creek Amphitheater in Hutto, and Dell Diamond and United Heritage Center in Round Rock. Between Formula 1, the United States Grand Prix, the IndyCar Classic and other events at Circuit of the Americas, dozens of concerts at Germania Insurance Amphitheater, Texas Stars hockey, Austin Spurs basketball and other concerts, shows and events at H-E-B Center, and Round Rock Express baseball at Dell Diamond, RS3 Strategic Hospitality served nearly 2.5 million sports fans in Central Texas in 2019.

8 Over the years, the game of baseball has evolved and so have methods for scoring the game. Different fans have different ways of keeping a scorecard, and many use their own notations. Our simple method involves using the symbols below to record each play depending on the outcome. The different numeric positions listed to the right can be used to add further detail.

7

For example, if a batter flies out to center field, "F8" could be written in the box. If a batter grounds out to third, "G53" would show the third baseman throwing to the first baseman to record the out. Finally, if a shortstop makes an error, "E6" could be used to describe the play.

As runners progress around the bases, darken the appropriate line in each box. When a runner scores, shade the entire box to illustrate the run being scored.

Express Brand Story EXPRESS

Our name is a nod to our owner and MLB Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan, who earned the nickname “The Ryan Express” during his record-setting 27-year professional career. The name is a perfect fit as it relates to the railroad and its proximity to the ballpark.

E-TRAIN

The team’s s primary E-Train logo has nced to more authentically been enhanced represent the historic trains that came ound Rock along the Chisholm through Round Trail.

BOLTS S

The three bolts in our E-Train logo represent the three pillars outlined in our atement that truly hold us mission statement together: our fans, our partners, and our players.

E COLOR SCHEME

naugural We’re throwing it back to our inaugural season with navy blue and adding a deep red with silver accents to kick off our 20th anniversary season celebration.

EXPRESS FONT The custom R featured in our new logo is part of a newly-designed font created by Brandiose for exclusive use by the Round Rock Express.

ROUND ROCK The focal point of our 20th anniversary

STEEL The steel design prominently featured in our E-Train logo is representative of railroad tracks that keep our brand true and straight, providing dependable means to move forward. Additionally, steel silos still remain on the ballpark grounds today, where we broke ground in a cornfield in 2000.

TEXAS STAR We’re proud to call the Lone Star State home and honor the State of Texas with the Texas Star at the center of our mark.

PILOT We strive to be on the cutting edge of innovation in professional sports. The train’s pilot pushes forward and symbolizes our core values of embracing and encouraging improvements and change and to be bold, courageous, creative and effective.

DOUBLE-R The double-R logo not only celebrates our proud history in the City of Round Rock, but also resembles a cattle brand in a subtle nod to the Ryan family’s love of ranching.

Want your chance to walk away from an Express game a little richer? Thanks to the passing of Proposition 5 in 2019, the Express, Nolan Ryan Foundation and Cook-Walden Funeral Homes & Cemeteries are joining forces to host a 50/50 Raffle every home game. A 50/50 Raffle means that half of the net proceeds from 50/50 ticket sales each night will go to one lucky fan while the other half will go back to the Nolan Ryan Foundation. Fans will be able to purchase raffle tickets from the time the gates open until the end of the sixth inning. The winner will be announced in the seventh inning. At the end of the season, the Nolan Ryan Foundation will make a donation to a variety of local nonprofit organizations in Central Texas through their recently-founded community grant program. Every night is a new chance to not only win, but help a great cause in the process. Tickets can be purchased at the 50/50 Raffle kiosk on the concourse behind home plate or from one of the roaming vendors throughout Dell Diamond. All raffle ticket purchases must be made with cash or a debit card. Credit cards will not be accepted, per state law.
