Nowitzki to throw first pitch in Game 3

By Richard Durrett

ST. LOUIS -- MLB has now confirmed that Dirk Nowitzki will throw out the first pitch in Game 3 of the World Series. That game is Saturday night at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

The first official pitch of the game is slated for 7:05 p.m., so Nowitzki will throw his before that. He also threw out a first pitch in June of this season, tossing a basketball to home plate before firing a strike with a baseball to Michael Young.
