Concepción and Larkin will throw simultaneous pitches on Opening Day
The Reds are calling on two former team captains to throw out the ceremonial first pitch on opening day. In a release, the team says David Concepción and Barry Larkin will throw out simultaneous first pitches before the Reds take on the Cardinals on March 31st at Great American Ball Park.
Concepción was named captain in 1983 and Larkin got the title before the 1997 season.
Concepción also will serve as the grand marshal of the 95th Findlay Market Opening Day Parade, which begins at noon before the 4:10 game.
