Astros Announce First Pitch Participants Ahead of World Series Game 1

Before the Astros officially kick off the final chapter of their march to a second World Series title in three years, they’re bringing back a few old friends.

As Gerrit Cole prepares to stride to the mound and take down the Nationals, he’ll have two trusted friends—and the baddest man in the NFL—to keep it warm.

Evan Gattis will squat behind the plate one more time at Minute Maid, and will surely call for a curveball from…Brian McCann.

We’ve been discussing in another thread who the National should have do this honor- here’s who the Astros are employing in Game 1 for comparative purposes.

Atlanta Braves’ Brian McCann to retire after 15-year career

Atlanta Braves catcher Brian McCann said Wednesday that he is retiring after 15 major league seasons.

McCann, 35, revealed his plans after Atlanta’s 13-1 loss to the visiting St. Louis Cardinals in the decisive Game 5 of the National League Division Series.

“This is it for me,” he told reporters in the locker room, saying he made the decision about a month and a half ago. “I’m going to go home and be a dad and play with those kids.”

The Georgia native began his career with nine seasons with the Braves and was named an All-Star seven times before moving to the New York Yankees in 2014. He won the World Series in 2017 after a trade to the Houston Astros.

What, no tour across the entire league?
