ARLINGTON, Texas — The two George Bushes are getting the honors for Sunday's Game 4, but the first pitch honors for Saturday's Game 3 were reserved for the most famous battery in franchise history. Though he was dressed more for a boardroom meeting, team president Nolan Ryan started his pitch with a high leg kick off the mound and threw it 68 MPH toward one of his old catchers, Ivan Rodriguez. The delivery from the Ryan Express got huge cheers, though not nearly as big as those for a replay of his fight with Robin Ventura — which also featured a peacemaking Pudge hanging onto the third baseman's back. :rock

There are a few people who have a problem with Rodriguez taking part in World Series festivities for another team while he's still under contract for another year with the Washington Nationals, but I don't really see a big issue with it. He's the top Ranger in history, his career is winding down and it's not like the Nats are a big rival. The fact that Fox didn't come back from commercial in time to show the pitch in full was a lot more annoying.
