An 84-year-old Kermit man is set to take the mound at Friday’s Texas Rangers game, and Local 2/Fox 24 will be there to capture the moment.
Ken Mays will throw out the first pitch in Arlington as the Rangers host the Tampa Bay Rays. Local 2/Fox 24’s Ryan Martin will be reporting LIVE from the ballpark Friday night on Local 2 at 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. and on Fox 24 at 9 p.m.
Mays, who coached Kermit High baseball for nearly 50 years, says that throwing out the first pitch at a Rangers game is on his bucket list.
We’re told Mays will take the mound shortly before 7. The game is scheduled to begin at 7:30.
