Love him or hate him, we will never forget that first pitch after 911. Derek saying “don’t throw it over his head they’ll boo you, don’t throw it in the dirt they’ll boo you.”

Then George throws a perfect strike. A big part of American history and the courage baseball and the American people brought together that evening. Truly a night I will never forget.
