Storm All-Star forward Swin Cash took to the mound Tuesday, throwing the first pitch before the Seattle Mariners faced the Tampa Bay Rays at Safeco Field.
“It was a lot of fun,” said Cash. “The weather was a little chilly, but I had a wonderful time. I had an opportunity to go up in the Wells Fargo suite and meet some real Storm fans up there. I want to say that I threw a strike, by the way, and I threw from the mound, just to let you know that.”
Indeed, Cash’s delivery to Mariners pitcher Doug Fister was over the plate. That was apparently a contrast to when Cash last delivered a first pitch at a Detroit Tigers game in 2003 while playing for the Shock.
“Well, allegedly, the ball hit the plate and skipped over for a strike,” explained Cash. “I’m not going for that. I know I threw the ball for a strike in Detroit. There’s footage of this one. It was definitely a strike.”
