Ryan and I had been living together for nearly 7 years when he told me that his friend could get us on the field that day to play catch. The Marlins were away that weekend, and I jumped at the chance. I've always wanted to throw out the first pitch, and this would be my chance to practice for real, barefoot on hallowed ground.
I did not anticipate what would happen next.
So happy that our friends Jason and Mike were there to quietly witness and record the occasion, and celebrate with us in the dugout.
