Manziel to throw first pitch Sunday for Rangers

HOUSTON – Johnny Manziel may be off Twitter now, but he hasn’t shied away from attending sporting events.

Manziel will throw out the first pitch Sunday night before the Texas Rangers’ game against the Los Angeles Angels.

Manziel grew up playing baseball and said last winter that his dream growing up was to play shortstop for the Rangers.

The Heisman Trophy winner had plenty of success across the street from Rangers Ballpark earlier this year. He was named the Offensive Most Valuable Player in the Cotton Bowl after totaling a Cotton Bowl-record 516 yards of total offense in a 41-13 rout of Oklahoma.

Manziel’s appearance is part of a big Aggie day at the ballpark. The Texas A&M Singing Cadets will handle the national anthem and “God Bless America” duties.

Approximately 12,000 tickets remain for the finale of a three-game series against the Angels. The home opener Friday is sold out, and approximately 3,000 tickets remain for Saturday’s game.
