Bo Jackson to throw out first pitch before Royals-White Sox game
Athlete extraordinaire Bo Jackson will throw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Royals-White Sox game in Chicago on opening day.
As administrators of ceremonial first pitches go, it's hard to beat this one: Bo Jackson.
Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports Jackson will indeed fire the first pitch prior to the Royals-White Sox game on opening day in Chicago. The now-50-year-old Jackson, of course, played for the Royals from 1986-90 and later spent two seasons as the White Sox's DH.
In parts of eight major-league seasons, Jackson batted .250/.309/.474 with 141 homers and 82 stolen bases. Of course, the numbers don't begin to tell the story of Jackson's superlative athleticism and cultural prominence.
