It’s rare that the guest throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at a Major League Baseball game is the most famous athlete in the stadium, but alas, that’ll be the case on Wednesday night when Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo does the honors prior to the Rangers’ game against the Seattle Mariners.
(The only Ranger that really comes close to Romo’s celebrity is Josh Hamilton (he's been a guest on Letterman, after all), but we have to give the nod to Romo, since NFL football reigns so supreme in the landscape of American sports at the moment.)
Romo will deliver the pitch to Rangers’ reliever Mike Adams, which is fitting since Adams is a lifelong Cowboys’ fan, a season ticket-holder who took time last year to attend a practice session at Cowboys Stadium last year, after which he caught passes from the Dallas quarterback.
"Hopefully he hits the target," Adams said, per ESPN Dallas. "It's really awesome. It's a cool thing, especially coming from one of the Cowboys players and a premier quarterback. That's neat."
