Cubs long, long time employee Yosh Kawano.
Wayne Messmer chats with Gary Matthews.
Bobby Dernier makes his entrance.
Andre Dawson before the ceremony.
Last year on Disney Day, Mickey Mouse threw out the first pitch, and the Cubs lost to the Astros 15-7. Mickey needs to be traded to the Cardinals.
This year Popeye threw out a ceremonial first pitch and the Cubs won 14-3 vs. the Marlins. I think Popeye needs to be invited back.
Ryno threw the ball from 2nd base to Mark Grace at first for an unusual ceremonial first pitch.
And Ryne also threw out a first pitch on Ryno day and the Cubs win 14-3. Hmmm.
BTW, when is Yosh going to throw out a first pitch?

In The Game, Robert Benson ties the nine innings of one ordinary minor-league game between the Iowa Cubs and the Nashville Sounds to the ordinary and not-so-ordinary innings of his own life. He shows how, through a series of seeminly routine plays in an average weeknight game such as this one--just as in our everday lives--we eventually win the game.
