Duff McKagan (VELVET REVOLVER, DUFF MCKAGAN’S LOADED, GUNS N’ ROSES) threw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to the game between the Seattle Mariners and the Boston Red Sox on June 28 at Safeco Field in Seattle, Washington.
“It was totally nerve-wracking to throw out the first pitch,” Duff told MLB.com. “I got about 150,000 texts saying don’t throw it in the dirt — so I threw it really high, but not too high.”
As previously reported, McKagan will be this year’s Grand Marshal of the Alaska Airlines Seafair Torchlight Parade in downtown Seattle.
This year’s parade is on Saturday, July 28, at 7:30 p.m. As always, it starts at Seattle Center and heads downtown along Fourth Avenue on a 2-1/2 mile route.
