Joey Gallo hit a home run in Tuesday night’s game, but it wouldn’t have happened if the Rangers’ top prospect hadn’t run a few red lights on his drive to the stadium.Usually driving through a red light will get you a ticketor, even worse, in an accident, but Gallo’s traffic violations were all legal. Why? Because he received a police escort, courtesy of the Rangers.MORE: Ranking the 50 best MLB playersThe team called up Gallo from Triple-A Round Rock, near Austin in Central Texas. After sleeping through the first of his manager’s phone calls, Gallo finally got the news and realized he needed to hurry. So instead of dealing with traffic, he drove by everyone with the help of a state trooper.We got to skip a lot of that standstill traffic, Gallo said after the game. I just followed him. [He used] yellow lights, some times he would put the red, white and blue on. Most people just pulled over. That definitely helped me get here on time. It definitely pretty sweet.Welcome back, @JoeyGallo24! A solo blast puts us on the board in the 5th! #LetsGoRangers Texas Rangers (@Rangers) July 27, 2016Gallo also received some extra help from Mother Nature as weather delayed the game an extra hour, giving the 22-year-old plenty of time. He ended up going 1-for-4 at the plate, only his second appearance of2016 and his first in the starting lineup.He’llhave a much shorter drive when the team plays Wednesday night.
