LAJ's Don Williams writes that Coach Leach will be throwing out the first pitch Friday night for the game between the Houston Astros and wait for it . . . wait . . . the Pittsburgh Pirates. Captain Mike had this to say about his first-pitch philosphy:
"I've been very lucky on those things," he said. "And if I throw it on the ground or throw it over the dude's head, I don't really care about that, because there's been plenty of people do that, so what difference does it make if I do it? By the third inning, they're not even going to remember who threw the first pitch anyway."
