Texas Rangers legend Ian Kinsler wears Team Israel jersey during ceremonial first pitch in ALCS

Ian Kinsler received a standing ovation when he threw out the ceremonial first pitch before Game 3 of the American League Championship Series at Globe Life Park on Wednesday night.

Kinsler spent eight of his 14 years in the Major Leagues with the Texas Rangers, picking up three All-Star nods playing in Arlington.

He was a 17th-round selection in the 2003 MLB Draft, but quickly became one of their top prospects, and eventually a fan favorite. He had two 30-30 seasons with the Rangers, and is now a special assistant to general manager Chris Young.

Texas won the first two games of the series, both in Houston, but as of publishing, the Rangers were down, 5-0 in Game 3 at their own home ballpark.
