Bo Jackson to throw out first pitch at White Sox opener
GLENDALE, Ariz. — Bo Jackson, the former White Sox outfielder and designated hitter who is generally regarded as one of the best athletes of all time, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch at U.S. Cellular Field on Opening Day.
Jackson, who played on the 1993 American League West champion Sox, was designated the “Greatest Athlete of All Time” by ESPN’s Sports Science. Jackson homered against the Yankees at Comiskey Park in hirst first at bat of the season in 1993 after he returned from hip replacement surgery. On September 27 of that season, he hit a three-run home run against the Seattle Mariners at Comiskey Park to help the White Sox clinch the division title.
The opener against the Royals on Monday starts at 3:10 p.m.
