Gibson, Sutter and Wainwright to throw out first pitch

23 Comments

This is pretty spiffy:  the ceremonial first pitch — make that “pitches” —  tonight in St. Louis will be thrown by Bob Gibson, Bruce Sutter and Adam Wainwright.  The significance: they threw the final pitches in each of the Cardinals’ last four World Series-clinching games. Gibson in 1964 and 1967, Sutter in 1982 and Wainwright in 2006.

Personally, I find it totally classless that they didn’t invite back Harry Brecheen, who did the honors in 1946.

What?  Well heck, why doesn’t anyone tell me these things.
