Ceremonial first pitchThanks to the American League All-Stars, Boston will host Game 1 of the 2004 World Series on Saturday. Yes ... the Lighter Side is serious about this one. No joke.
So we ask ourselves ... who throws out the ceremonial first pitch? Do we reach back in Red Sox lore, or stay away from the past? John Kerry can't reach the plate, so he's out.
But it's got to be somebody from New England ... and it has to make sense. Help us out here.
Who is going to throw out the first pitch?
