ARLINGTON, Texas, Oct. 29 (UPI) -- Texas baseball and presidential royalty will throw out ceremonial first pitches as the World Series moves to the Lone Star State.

Tossing the ceremonial first pitch in Game 3 between the Texas Rangers and the San Francisco Giants Saturday will be pitching great Nolan Ryan, team president and an owner of the Rangers, Major League Baseball said in a release.

In Game 4, former Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush will share ceremonial first-pitch duties, league officials said. George W. Bush was the Rangers' managing general partner from 1989 through 1992 and maintained partial club ownership until 1998.

Friday was a travel day. Games 3, 4 and 5 (if necessary) are played in Texas. If necessary, Games 6 and 7 will be played in San Francisco.

San Francisco leads the best-of-seven series 2-0.
