ANAHEIM -- For the first time since 1993, Nolan Ryan will return to Anaheim.
Ryan, who spent years with the then-California Angels, will throw out the first pitch before the Rangers' series opener against the Angels on Friday night. He will also receive his Angels Hall of Fame ring during a pregame ceremony.
Ryan was supposed to throw out the first pitch at a Rangers game in Anaheim last July before being hospitalized with chest pain.
To accommodate the event, Friday's game time has been moved back from 7:05 p.m. PT to 7:12 p.m.
