I assumed that today's starter, Homer Bailey, would make the first pitch. Is this something new?
Yes it is a long time Cincy tradition that a former player will pitch to the first batter. If I recall correctly I think it was either Jim Maloney or Joey Jay who pitched to the first batter in the 75' WS.
I hope Browning does well.
