ARLINGTON, Texas The Texas Rangers got a taste of green on Monday as Mean Green head basketball coach Johnny Jones threw out the honorary first pitch at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington before the Rangers .vs. Mariners game.
Jones, who led the Mean Green to its first NCAA Tournament berth since 1988, was on hand and threw a knee-high fastball over the heart of the plate to Mean Green outside linebacker Maurice Holman. Jones was also the guest of Fox Sports Southwest in a live interview with Jim Knox during the third inning.
Holman, an All-Sun Belt honorable mention selection the past two seasons, sported his Mean Green jersey as he provided services as the honorary catcher for the pre-game ceremonies.
