In what must have been the easiest decision of all time, Rangers president Nolan Ryan will throw out the first pitch of tomorrow’s ALCS opener in Texas. He’ll throw to fellow Rangers Hall of Famer Jim Sundberg.

Texas country artist Stoney Larue will sing the Star Spangled Banner and God Bless American will be performed by Michael Borts, who has performed the anthem at Rangers games for more than two decades.

For Saturday’s Game 2, Ferguson Jenkins will throw the first pitch, also with Sundberg catching. Country artist Steve Wariner will sing the National Anthem and another country singer, Neal McCoy, will perform God Bless America.

Rally towels are being given away both nights.

Obstructed view seats remain for both games. Standing room tickets are sold out for Game 1 but remain for Game 2.
