TYLER, TX (KLTV) - The Texas Rangers Winter Caravan came to East Texas Tuesday.  It wasn't the biggest names on the team, but fans still came out in bunches.

Hundreds lined up at Super 1 Foods in Tyler late in the afternoon to get autographs from players Mitch Moreland and Derek Holland.  Third base coach Dave Anderson and broadcaster Tom Grieve were also there.

After signing in Tyler, the guys signed more autographs in Longview.

"It's great to come here this early and see everyone so excited," said Moreland.  "It just kind of shows what we've accomplished and what we're looking to accomplish down the road."

Moreland knows how much the fans enjoyed the teams post season success.  The players hope to match it again in 2011.

"It was a great experience, we enjoyed it," he said.  "Playing in front of the fans at the stadium was an awesome experience. I hope we can build off of it and keep it going."
