The Texas Rangers announced that the club has donated several artifacts from the first regular season game in Globe Life Field history to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York.
The Hall of Fame will receive several artifacts from the Rangers game with the Colorado Rockies on Friday, including the baseball used to throw the first pitch in the game from Lance Lynn to David Dahl in the top of the first inning.
The jersey worn by Lynn as he pitched 6.0 shutout innings to record a 1-0 victory and a base used in the game will also go to the Hall of Fame.
