Saturday morning I woke up I really wasn't thinking about the pitch I would be making. It wasn't a sales pitch. However, waking up, my knees felt like Jell-O when I realized that thousands of people would be watching me on a field.
What pitch am I talking about? Because I raised the most money in the All Stars for Autism campaign I would get to throw out the first pitch at the Reds vs. Cardinals game.
Saturday morning I threw a baseball in front of the house to practice. It was raining, but I had not thrown a baseball since 1998 so the practice was much needed. The first several pitches I threw were low so I corrected that and had confidence.
Getting to Busch Stadium was a surreal feeling. I had been to games before, but never with the expectation of being on the field before the game! With each step I took I thought, "Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness!..."
