This is pretty spiffy: the ceremonial first pitch — make that “pitches” — tonight in St. Louis will be thrown by Bob Gibson, Bruce Sutter and Adam Wainwright. The significance: they threw the final pitches in each of the Cardinals’ last four World Series-clinching games. Gibson in 1964 and 1967, Sutter in 1982 and Wainwright in 2006.
Personally, I find it totally classless that they didn’t invite back Harry Brecheen, who did the honors in 1946.
What? Well heck, why doesn’t anyone tell me these things.
