Throwing the First Pitch at Yankee Stadium

Ceremonial first pitches are among the most popular traditions in sports.

Once reserved for dignitaries and sitting presidents, the first pitch is now done every night before games and often used as opportunities to honor or highlight a certain event. Last week, I was invited to throw the ceremonial first pitch at New York’s Yankee Stadium as part of the "New York Times Bestselling Author First Pitch Series". As a longtime Yankees fan, it was a great opportunity to celebrate "Martha's Flowers: A Practical Guide to Growing, Gathering, and Enjoying" and to attend a special game with my family! I had a wonderful time.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
