Kennedy to throw out first pitch?

So who’s going to throw out the first pitch at Fenway Park today?

According to a report in the Boston Herald, the Red Sox want it to be Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, though it’s still unclear whether the ailing senator will be at Fenway today to make the ceremonial toss from the mound. Kennedy has been battling brain cancer for the past year.

The Red Sox are scheduled to kick off their Opening Day ceremonies at around 1:20 p.m. (weather permitting).
