Tickets still available for Yu Darvish's start


SURPRISE, Ariz. -- If you want to see Yu Darvish make his major league debut, you still have time to purchase a ticket. The Texas Rangers announced that about 20,000 tickets remain for Darvish's first start against Seattle on Monday, April 9. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased by calling 972-RANGERS, going to www.texasrangers.com or in person at the West Box Office at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

Opening Day verus the Chicago White Sox, started by Colby Lewis, is a sellout, and there are 4,500 tickets left for Saturday's game and about 10,000 for Sunday's game (on ESPN nationally).

As always, the games can be heard on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM, the club's flagship station, with Eric Nadel and Steve Busby on the call. And you can join us for live in-game chats here on ESPN Dallas (you can even do it through your phone at the ballpark).
