Heim, Rangers Pay Tribute To Lou Gehrig With Personal Connections


A year ago, as the Rangers and MLB celebrated the third annual Lou Gehrig Day, Texas catcher Jonah Heim’s mother-in-law, Hilary Prince, threw out the first pitch to Heim at Globe Life Field.

This year, the Heim family will once again be present to honor Lou Gehrig Day. During the pregame ceremonies, the Rangers will recognize Jonah Heim and his wife, Kenzie, by honoring the life of Kenzie’s mother, who passed away earlier this year after battling ALS. Gary Prince, Kenzie’s father and Jonah’s father-in-law, will throw the first pitch in memory of his late wife.

“[Kenzie’s] mom threw out the last first pitch on this day,” Jonah Heim said. “Obviously, we wanted more time, but it feels full circle. It’s gonna be pretty special. I know it’s gonna be very emotional. But it’s important, and we’re all looking forward to it.”

The Heim family has experienced firsthand the challenges of watching a loved one battle ALS. They are proud to join MLB and the Rangers in their ongoing efforts to raise awareness about the disease.

MLB and all 30 clubs continue to support ALS-focused organizations, raising funds and spreading awareness to find a cure.

MLB legend Lou Gehrig, who played 2,130 consecutive games during his Hall of Fame career, died of ALS — a progressive neurodegenerative disease called amyotrophic lateral sclerosis — on June 2, 1941. MLB has honored him on the anniversary of his death for the past four years, starting on the 80th anniversary in 2021. However, since the Rangers were out of town on that day, they chose to honor him on June 3 this year.

In conjunction with this event, Texas Rangers Families and the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation have partnered to raise funds for a donation to the ALS Association, which will be presented during the pregame ceremony. Additionally, the Rangers Foundation will donate all proceeds from Monday’s Texas 2 Split 50/50 Raffle to the ALS Association.
