In a week that keeps on getting better for Andre Ingram, the Los Angeles Dodgers announced the 32-year-old rookie will throw out the ceremonial first pitch on Friday at Dodgers Stadium.
Andre Ingram will be the first Laker to throw a first pitch at Dodgers Stadium in the 2018-19 MLB season. Lonzo Ball did it in June of last year, while Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart have yet to do it. Surely that will change within the coming months.
Ingram has only been an NBA player for the past four days but he’s already a crowd favorite. His success story, which involves a 10-year journey to the NBA, has resonated with people from all walks of life, including his new NBA peers.
The Dodgers will take on the Arizon Diamondbacks Friday at 7:10 p.m. You can get tickets to see Ingram throw out the first pitch here.
