HOUSTON, TX - Two Astros legends will assume their original playing positions for the ceremonial first pitch on April 1 during the Astros 2014 Opening Day pregame festivities.
Former Astros ace and current Executive Advisor Nolan Ryan will take the mound to throw out the ceremonial first pitch to
Craig Biggio, who first started in the Astros organization as a catcher, and now serves as a special assistant to the general manager. In Biggio’s first year in the Majors, he caught Nolan Ryan’s 100th win as an Astro while they were both on the 1988 Astros squad.
Additionally, Astros Hall of Fame radio broadcaster Milo Hamilton will address the crowd to kick off the 2014 Astros season, and Astros primary TV play-by-play announcer Bill Brown will introduce the starting lineups for both teams.
