FRONTLINE HEROES THROWING GAME ONE CEREMONIAL FIRST PITCH: Tonight as the 2020 Fall Classic begins, Major League Baseball will honor the everyday heroes who inspire us all by being on the frontlines during the pandemic, selflessly giving of themselves for months to serve their communities and their fellow citizens. Four amazing examples of that spirit – healthcare heroes who courageously and voluntarily stepped up to go where they were needed most – will be recognized on the field and participate in the ceremonial first pitch. They include:

• Jamie Edens & Ryan Ward – In April, this married couple – who are both nurses from Tulsa, Oklahoma – resigned from their jobs, packed up their belongings, and drove across the country to help on the frontlines of coronavirus pandemic in New York City. Upon completing their commitment in New York at the end of July, they drove to Texas and continue to display the same selfless commitment. Jaime will be throwing the ceremonial first pitch to Ryan tonight.

• Erika Combs – Erika is an oncology and kidney transplant nurse at a Dallas hospital, and voluntarily switched units to serve in the COVID-19 unit for over a month to help meet the needs in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

• Brittney Burns – Brittney, a Nurse Practitioner, left her home in San Antonio, Texas to work in New York City at the onset of the pandemic. After 101 days there, she came back to her hometown of San Antonio where she has now been aiding in the fight for another 100 days.

GAME ONE NATIONAL ANTHEM PERFORMANCE: Arlington, Texas natives and Grammy Award-winning a cappella group Pentatonix has prerecorded The National Anthem for Game One, which will be shown in Globe Life Field and on FOX during pregame ceremonies.

“PLAY BALL!” ON THE VIDEOBOARD: Texas Governor Greg Abbott will help usher in Game One by calling out the traditional “PLAY BALL!” at Globe Life Field this evening.
