Original Nats’ battery mates Chad Cordero, Brian Schneider throw out first pitch before World Series

The pitcher and catcher who got the final out of the Nationals’ first game at RFK Stadium in 2005 threw out the ceremonial first pitch before Friday night’s game against Houston.

When the Nationals asked former closer Chad Cordero and former catcher Brian Schneider to throw at the first pitch at Game 3 of the World Series, the two men had a problem.

The team wanted them to wear an original jersey from the 2005 season when baseball returned to Washington. The same ones they wore that memorable April 14, 2005 night at RFK Stadium.

Except Schneider had no idea where he stored his jerseys. And Cordero knew most of his were in framed glass cases. The two men schemed and Cordero had an idea: Their parents.
