ARLINGTON (AP) — Greg Maddux will throw the ceremonial first pitch before the Texas Rangers season opener.

Maddux, a special assistant to the Rangers general manager, will be inducted into baseball’s Hall of Fame later this year after the pitcher was a first-ballot selection. His first pitch March 31 will be caught by his brother, Texas pitching coach Mike Maddux.

The team on Wednesday announced details of pregame ceremonies for the opener against Philadelphia.

For the first regular-season game at The Ballpark in Arlington in 1994, the national anthem was performed by the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra accompanied by Fort Worth resident and award-winning classical pianist, the late Van Cliburn. The Fort Worth orchestra will return 20 years later to perform “The Star-Spangled Banner” again.
