Rangers Honor New Hall Of Fame Inductee Blyleven

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — New Hall of Famer Bert Blyleven has been honored by the Texas Rangers, one of his former teams.

Blyleven returned to work Wednesday as a broadcaster for the Minnesota Twins, who are playing in Texas.

The Rangers gave out cards commemorating Blyleven’s time with Texas, which acquired the right-hander from Minnesota on June 1, 1976. He made 54 starts for the Rangers, including a no-hitter in his last start with Texas on Sept. 22, 1977.

Blyleven threw a ceremonial first pitch before the game.

Blyleven was inducted into the Hall of Fame on Sunday as a Twin. His 22-year major league career started in Minnesota and he was part of the 1987 World Series championship in a second stint with the Twins.
