Many DFW sports fans will see Dallas Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee on a playing field for the first time in over a year on Thursday, when the Frisco RoughRiders open up their 2015 season at Dr. Pepper Ballpark.
Lee, who missed the entire 2014 season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the home opener of the Texas Rangers Double-A affiliate.
Interestingly enough, Lee has a strong connection to RoughRiders CEO and General Partner, Chuck Greenberg. Per the Dallas Morning News, as a kid in Pennsylvania, Lee was coached by Greenberg in Little League Baseball and played football with two of his sons.
The RoughRiders’ opener is set for 7:05 Thursday night, and you can get tickets at RidersBaseball.com.
