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.
To be fair, they have some good young arms that are actually pitching decently. Th problem is that they can't hit anything. There are only 5 guys on the whole team who are hitting above .200. Dimitri Young is hitting .176.
