Oakland A's Draft FM Naroditsky!

The Oakland A's have drafted World U12 Champion FM Daniel Naroditsky to throw out the ceremonial first pitch on Wednesday, April 23 against the Minnesota Twins. The game start time is 7:05pm with the first pitch typically a few minutes prior to that. I heard that pro scouts are excited about Danya's fastball that has been clocked in the high 80s with exceptional location in the strike zone.

(As for me, I will remain a SF Giants fan. I am known to wear my Giants cap at many chess tournaments. Nonetheless, I attend a game or two each year to watch the Sacramento River Cats, Triple A affiliate of the A's.)
