Michael Young's turn has arrived.
The Texas Rangers on Tuesday announced that they will retire Young's No. 10 in a pregame ceremony Aug. 31, news that comes less than two weeks after the club retired Adrian Beltre's No. 29 at Globe Life Park.
The on-field ceremony will begin at 6:40 p.m., with first pitch of the Rangers-Mariners game being moved from 7:05 p.m. to 7:35 p.m.
"Michael Young is certainly very deserving of this honor," team co-chairman and managing partner Ray Davis said in a statement. "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. We are very proud to make this announcement today."

Young, a 14-year veteran of Major League Baseball, played parts of 13 seasons in Texas (2000-12) and currently serves as special assistant to Rangers general manager Jon Daniels. He will join Beltre, Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez, Johnny Oates and Nolan Ryan as ex-Rangers to have had their numbers retired by the club.
