Preparing for tomorrow night’s first pitch

Well, tonight I spent a great deal of time “warming up” in the bullpen at Bailey Brayton Field on campus.  Tomorrow night I’ll be throwing out the first pitch at the Tacoma Rainiers game to take part in WSU Night with the Tacoma Rainiers.  When they asked me if I’d be willing to do it, I told them they were about 20 years late in asking.  But they insisted, and since we have a full day of activities tomorrow in Tacoma — I’ll be visiting our extension station and visiting with some community leaders — I decided to give it a go.  We’ll see how this goes tomorrow night.  (I’ll actually have a better gauge on this when I wake up in the morning and see how stiff my arm and back feel after tonight.)  See all you Cougs out at the ballpark tomorrow night!
