The Modesto A's have extended an invitation to Governor Gray Davis and all 135 California Recall candidates to throw out a ceremonial first pitch at the team's Fan Appreciation Night game on Saturday, August 23.
"We're not a political organization. We're a community organization," said A's general manager Greg Coleman. "Our goal is to see who truly values the voters in our community. Those that want to make a lasting impression will accept the invitation."
Braving the horror show that is Comicon. We're not set up, but we'll be around all weekend.
I had a bad feeling when I got into the car and they were playing his call of Edgar's Division Series-winning double in 1995 for what otherwise would have been no reason, but I assumed it was because he was retiring. RIP.
