You throw, girl.
Over the weekend, golfer Michelle Wie threw out the first pitch at the Dodgers Game.
Not sure how we missed the fact that last Wednesday, Los Angeles Sparks forwards and 2008 Olympians Tina Thompson and Delisha Milton Jones were similarly honored. The pair were featured during the Dodger’s Olympic celebration.
As part of the night’s festivities, Tina and Delisha also got a chance to throw the first pitch of the game.
Earlier in the season, Jackie Joyner Kersee, Sports Illustrated’s Greatest Female Athlete of the 20th Century and winner of three gold, a silver and two bronze Olympic medals and Cammi Granato, who captained the U.S. Women’s Hockey team to the gold medal at the 1998 Olympic Winter Games threw out ceremonial first pitches at games in Chicago.
Nice to see these female athletes getting some attention.
