Kenny Rogers elected to Rangers Hall of Fame

Kenny Rogers has been elected as the 14th member of the Texas Rangers Baseball Hall of Fame, the club announced today.

Rogers spent 12 years with the club over three separate stints (1989-95; 2000-02; 2004-05), the longest tenure of any pitcher in team history. In addition to being the Rangers all-time leader with 528 pitching appearances, Rogers ranks second lifetime with 133 wins and 1909.0 innings, is third in games started (252) and strikeouts (1201), and places fourth in relief appearances (276).

Rogers' perfect game in 1994 against the California Angels was just 11th regular season perfect game in major league history, and the first for an American League left-hander.

He will be inducted into the Rangers Hall of Fame during pregame ceremonies Aug. 6 before the Rangers 7:05 p.m. game with the Cleveland Indians.
