Kiner to throw out first pitch at home opener
PHILADELPHIA -- Hall of Famer Ralph Kiner, an original Mets announcer and a fixture in the team's broadcast booth over the last five decades, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch before Friday's home opener at Citi Field.

Kiner, who still regularly participates in the team's SNY broadcasts at Citi Field, is entering his 50th season as a Mets broadcaster.

Citi Field's pregame ceremony will also include a presentation of 140 veterans representing all five branches of the U.S. military.
