Rangers to Honor Blyleven On ... Wait. What's This? Foxy Brown's Throwing a First Pitch?
Jason Terry, incidentally, will be throwing out Friday's ceremonial first pitch. But more important, per Blake's note:
Also on Friday night, the Texas Rangers Wives will be holding a silent auction featuring 38 gift baskets from Nolan Ryan, Ron Washington, players and coaches on the 2011 club. The baskets will be displayed inside the Home Plate Gate entrance and bidding will go from 4:30 until 8:00 p.m. All proceeds from the gift basket auction will go to the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation Memorial Account in honor of Shannon Stone.So do that. Also: The Old 97's are playing Saturday night, after Rangers-Blue Jays. But I like this note: Sunday's ceremonial first pitch will be thrown out by actress Pam Grier. That's right. The baddest one-chick hit-squad that ever hit town ... who will be followed July 28 by this guy. Pffft.
Update: And you can meet Pam Grier tonight, matter of fact, at a Jackie Brown screening. Details here.
