From a Dodgers' press release:
The Los Angeles Dodgers will welcome the world's leading boxer Manny Pacquiao on June 17 when the Filipino icon will throw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to the 7:10 p.m. game against Oakland. Pacquiao most recently accomplished a two-round defeat of Ricky Hatton. [...]
Group tickets for Pacquiao's first pitch night can be purchased at www.dodgers.com/philippines or by calling 323-223-1433. The boxer maintains a residence in Los Angeles and $1 of every ticket sold using the promo code PACMAN will benefit the Manny Pacquiao Foundation created by the boxer to give back to the underprivileged men, women, and children of his native Philippines.
Did you see Pacquiao knock out Hatton? I know nothing about boxing but wow was that impressive.
Pacquiao has said he played baseball when he was younger and apparently threw a strike to Lincecum when he did first-pitch duties for the Giants.
P.S.: Pacquiao's name has four consecutive vowels. Can you think of another word like that?
