A first pitch worth arriving early for

I’ve been a big baseball fan for 50+ years but I still can’t figure out whether this delivery would be legal. No matter, it only had to be entertaining, more entertaining than most of the ceremonial first pitches you see at the old ballyard.

It happened last night when a performer for Cirque Cirque du Soleil threw out the first pitch at a San Diego Padres game.

It’s been a big week for noteworthy “first pitches.”

At a baseball game this week, Erica Brown was invited to throw out the first pitch. She didn’t know the catcher was her boyfriend, a soldier home early from his deployment.
