Johnny Football is about to turn into 'Johnny First-Pitch.' At least for one night.

The Browns rookie will throw out the ceremonial first pitch at Progressive Field before a game between the Indians and Red Sox on Wednesday. This might end up being the most attended Indians game in history, not only is Johnny Football throwing out the first pitch, but it's also dollar hot dog night

The game is scheduled for a 7:05 p.m. ET start, so get there early if you want to see Johnny.

The last time we saw Manziel at a baseball game was back in April when he sat in the front row at a Rangers game with a girl that may or may not have been an Instagram model. This time around, Manziel won't be sitting in the front row, he'll actually be on the field. 

If Manziel's first-pitch ends up looking anything like 50 Cent's did in New York, then Brian Hoyer should probably just plan on being the Browns starting quarterback in 2014.
