Sotomayor to throw out first pitch

This from the Yankees:

The New York Yankees will hold two special ceremonial first pitches during the team’s final regular season homestand to commemorate Hispanic Heritage Month.

United States Supreme Court Justice – and Bronx native – Sonia Sotomayor will throw out the game’s first pitch on Saturday, September 26, prior to the Yankees’ 4:10 p.m. game vs. the Red Sox.

Panama President Ricardo Martinelli will do the honor the night before, on Friday, September 25, prior to the Yankees’ 7:05 p.m. game vs. Red Sox.


If you’re the president of Panama, one would assume that staying on the good side of Mariano Rivera is key to retaining power. One word from the Sandman and you’re out.

As for Judge Sotomayor, hopefully she will be able to take the time to rule on these thorny disputes that have long troubled the Yankees. The backlog of cases includes:

Cabrera v. Gardner.

Torre v. Levine

Mussina v. Pavano

Joba in the rotation v. Joba in the bullpen

UZR and WAR v. Intangibles and Leadership

Common sense v. Pitching Brian Bruney

Posada v. Burnett

Hal v. Hank
