Toronto Rock all-star forward Stephan Leblanc was invited to throw the ceremonial first pitch at a Toronto Blue Jays game this weekend.
This is the first time I’ve seen a lacrosse players throw a first pitch at a MLB game, especially with his stick. Peter Baum threw the first pitch at a Columbus Clippers game earlier this seasn, but they are the AAA affiliate of the Cleveland Indians.
Welcome to the big leagues, Stephan. The first pitch was definitely a “ball” and if guys were on base, they likely scored. But hats off to you sir, and for repping our game on the diamond.
Toronto dropped their playoff game to the Bandits last weekend. Stephan finished with 88 points (45 Goals, 43 Assists).
