First pitch

The first pitch is a tradition in baseball in which a notable figure—such as a politician or celebrity—throws a ceremonial pitch to signal the start of a game or of the season. To do this is to throw the first pitch or to throw out the first pitch. The first pitch is entirely ceremonial—it is not part of the actual game. First pitches are especially associated with the traditions of Opening Day—a name for the first day of a baseball season, especially the Major League Baseball (MLB) season. US presidents are known for throwing the first pitch on Opening Day or during the World Series. Example: It’s obvious that many celebrities who throw the first pitch have never thrown a baseball, but she threw a perfect strike!
