Ceremonial First Pitch
« Topic Start: June 30, 2012, 10:37:49 AM »
I'm curious, what does it take to throw out one of these?

It usually seems to be a season ticket holder, or some corporate exec who has clearly paid a lot of money for the right to do it. But what about the charity-related people who sometimes do it? How did they get the chance?

I ask because the government agency I work for is going to a Nationals game next month. We are bringing a decent sized group (about 100 people) and one of them is a somewhat notable ex-statesman, who is doing great work to help disadvantaged groups. I would love to see him throw out the first pitch, and I'm wondering if I could get this done without breaking the bank.

You often see representatives of major groups that are at the park do it.  I'd imagine you start with your ticket rep and ask him her, or else email fluffer.
