Arlington, TX—Fans attending games during this homestand with the Minnesota Twins and Los Angeles Angels at Globe Life Park in Arlington will have an opportunity to thank Michael Young for his remarkable Major League career, including his 12 years in Texas.

The club announced today that fans will have the opportunity to sign large Michael Young Thank You Cards for the final seven games of this homestand through Wednesday, August 21. 

The four by six feet cards will be located behind sections 32-34 on the main concourse, and will be available for signing from the time the gates open through the end of the second inning for each game.

The Thank You Cards will be presented to Michael Young as part of the on-field ceremony to retire his uniform number 10 prior to the game between the Rangers and Seattle Mariners on Saturday, August 31.

The on-field ceremony on August 31 will begin at 6:40 p.m. with the first pitch of the Rangers-Mariners game moved from 7:05 to 7:35 p.m.
