The MLB has been great all season in supporting their ‘Welcome Back Veterans’ program, and on Thursday Marine Corporal Nicholas Kimmel threw out the ceremonial first pitch for World Series Game 2. Kimmel was a former high school baseball star at Moses Lake High School in Washington and lost both legs and his left arm in an explosion while on his second tour of duty in Afghanistan. Kimmel was accompanied by Barry Zito and Willie Mays. It is hard to find a better way to start a World Series game.
