ARLINGTON, Texas -- Mike Adams, a Dallas Cowboys season ticket holder, will catch quarterback Tony Romo's ceremonial first pitch prior to Wednesday's game with the Seattle Mariners.

"Hopefully he hits the target," said Adams, who has a Cowboys helmet in his locker and has caught passes from Romo at Cowboys Stadium after a practice last year. "It's really awesome. It's a cool thing, especially coming from one of the Cowboys players and a premier quarterback. That's neat."

Adams has actually caught a first pitch from an NFL quarterback before, stretching to catch a wide one from San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers while Adams was with the Padres last season.

Adams doesn't plan on giving Romo some advice.

"I'm just going to ask him if he needs me to be on my toes or not," Adams said. "I need to know if I've got to go diving out or anything."
