1. A 64-year-old guy from San Diego named Tom Willis has now thrown out the first pitch at 29 different Major League ballparks. And it’s way more impressive once you hear this part: He doesn’t have ARMS. He uses his feet to throw.
He tossed out the first pitch at a Yankee game on Tuesday. Angel Stadium is the last one on his list. That could happen next season. (Here’s a video.)
2. Speaking of first pitches: A woman in Ohio named Jean Petti got to celebrate her birthday by throwing out the first pitch at a Minor League game the other day. Impressive, because she turned 103 YEARS OLD this week.
3. A group of 15 hospital workers in Pennsylvania pooled their money and hit the Mega Millions for a million bucks. They each got a check for $48,600 after taxes.
4. And speaking of Pennsylvania: A school district near Philadelphia just welcomed its new class of kindergarteners . . . including 17 sets of twins.
