ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) – There are still a couple of exhibition games for the Texas Rangers to play this week. But, the team is looking forward to Opening Day on Friday.

Today, the franchise announced what fans can expect to see when the Rangers play the Chicago White Sox at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

The Rangers are celebrating their 40th anniversary in North Texas. Members of the 1972 Rangers team will throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Among the former players and coaches scheduled to attend are Tom Grieve, Toby Harrah, Larry Biitner, Rich Billings and Wayne Terwilliger.

Texas country music group, Reckless Kelly, will perform the National Anthem. B-1 bombers are scheduled to fly over the stadium following the National Anthem.

Parking lots will open at 8 a.m. on Friday. Gates will open two hours later at 10 a.m. The first pitch is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. when Colby Lewis takes the hill for the Texas Rangers. The game is sold out.

Texas is 20 and 20 in regular season opening games. The Rangers have won the last three opening day games.

CBS 11 will have extensive coverage from Arlington starting Friday morning on CBS 11 This Morning. TXA 21 will re-broadcast the Opening Day game starting at 6:30 p.m. on Friday.
