DETROIT -- Jerome Bettis is scheduled to throw the first pitch at the Detroit Tigers' home opener, a few homers away from where he helped the Pittsburgh Steelers win the Super Bowl.

The Tigers will host the World Series champion Chicago White Sox on Monday afternoon.

Bettis, the NFL's fifth-leading rusher, closed his 13-year career two months ago with a title after Pittsburgh beat Seattle at Ford Field, which is adjacent to the Tigers' Comerica Park. The Detroit native often displays his affection for his hometown team by wearing a baseball cap adorned with an Old English D.

I heard from some one today that a 16 year old skater from the University of Delaware threw the openin pitch for the Phillies game today. I think it was my friend Kimmie. If anyone knows or finds an article let me know. Thanks.

Why? He is from Detroit and likely a Tigers fan. Maybe he can do one of the games when the Tigers come to Pittsburgh in July.

Im sure the Bus had a big fan base from his home town. Hes entitled to like any baseball team that he wants, has nothing to do with football.
