So Colin Powell will throw the first pitch opening day and Patti Labelle will sing the national anthem. Tim Raines is the manager. Tino Martinez will appear and sign autographs at the May 3rd game. Retired major leaguers will play on Sunday home games.

Now if they can only get Paul O’Neill to play I may be able to get my wife to go to a game.
