'Yu's on?' ad recalls Abbott & Costello
ARLINGTON -- The Rangers debuted their newest TV spot on Saturday, featuring pitcher Yu Darvish and catcher Mike Napoli in a parody of the famous Abbott & Costello routine, "Who's on First?" The ad plays off Yu's name and the confusion that ensues when Napoli answers a young fan's question about the new Rangers' pitcher's identity.

Darvish gets the last word, saying the 1940s comedy duo are "big in Japan."

"It was fun," Darvish said of the shoot. "I had a good time."

Fans can view the ad, along with alternate endings, at texasrangers.com. It will air on FOX Sports Southwest beginning Tuesday.
