Before Game 5, focus momentarily shifts back to Yankees

World Series Giants Rangers Baseball

Tonight’s World Series Game 5 is all about Cliff Lee vs. Tim Lincecum. Lee trying to keep the Rangers alive. Lincecum trying to clinch a championship.

Today’s ESPN Radio interview with Rangers CEO Chuck Greenberg somehow became all about the Yankees.

“I think our fans have been great,” Greenberg said. “I think particularly in Game 3 of the World Series they just blew away anything I’ve seen in any venue during the postseason. I thought Yankees fans, frankly, were awful. They were either violent or apathetic, neither of which is good. So I thought Yankees fans were by far the worst of any I’ve seen in the postseason. I thought they were an embarrassment.”

• The ceremonial first pitch will be thrown by Ferguson Jenkins.

• Charley Pride will sing the National Anthem. In the late 50s, Pride actually played for the Negro American League’s Memphis Red Sox. Pretty cool.

• First pitch is scheduled for 7:57 p.m. ET.
