Thanks for the link, Ron. I am not sure why the Tribe felt the need for this. Is this making some sort of a point that I am missing (raising money for charity)?

Not trying to be dour. Just trying to understand why this is news and why a MLB team decided to do this "PR stunt" that serves no real purpose. Bill Veeck would be proud (that is... if she appeared in a real MLB game!). Does this now open the door for other non-deserving humans (animals, robots, etc) to get the chance to throw BP to hitters that belong to a professional organizaton?

Not sure, either, RFA66, but it's kinda cool that she got the opportunity.

It seems more legit than those times when Garth Brooks or somebody would join the spring training lineup. It's just spring after all.
