First Pitch Opening Day

Unread postby redneckofsc » Wed Apr 03, 2013 9:45 am

During the broadcast last night, the Blue Jays announcers said that Opening Day at Progressive Field, the first pitch would be thrown out by Tito Francona, Steve McCallister, Sandy Alomar, and Mickey Brantley to Terry, Zach, Sandy Jr, and Michael.

Question is, did they just forget to mention Steve Swisher, or is there some reason he won't be there?

I saw his name mentioned elsewhere. May have been oversight last night on broadcast.

Absolutely. Might have to be part of the Monday Home Opener gear depending on the weather.
