Texas Rangers to retire Michael Young's No. 10

Michael Young’s No. 10 will be officially retired by the Texas Rangers.

The team announced on Tuesday that Young’s number will be retired in a pregame ceremony on August 31.

Young played on the Rangers from 2000-2012 and was part of the two Rangers teams that made the World Series.

"His contributions to the Texas Rangers franchise have been extraordinary. On the field, Michael was one of the top hitters in the American League for over a decade and served in a strong leadership role. Off the field, his contributions in the community have had a huge impact in so many ways," said Rangers co-chairman Ray Davis in a statement. "We are very proud to make this announcement today."

Young is the fifth Rangers player to have his number retired. Other retired numbers include Nolan Ryan, manager Johnny Oates, Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez and Adrian Beltre.
