WALZ THROWS OUT FIRST PITCH AT UK VS LOUISVILLE BASEBALL
A nice honor Tuesday night for Louisville head women's baseball coach Jeff Walz, getting to throw out the first pitch at the Cats vs. Cards baseball game at Jim Patterson Stadium.
Jared Anderson was there to get photos of the event and reports that Walz sent one right down the middle of the strike zone.
The Cards won baseball's version of the Battle of the Bluegrass 4-2.
... (There is no truth to the rumor that Jared stepped in to bat against Walz after the first pitch and got a high and tight "brush back" pitch delivered to him...or that Daryl Foust (a former softball player) went "grass, track, wall...touch 'em all" in the next at-bat against Walz...)
We're also trying to verify the rumor that Walz invited Louisville baseball coach Dan McDonnell to receive the first "technical" of the Cards WBB 2022-23 season.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
