Independent baseball team @railcats had ticket promotion where lucky fan gets signed by team to a contract, gets a uniform and throws the first pitch in a game. No, like the actual first pitch to the opposing batter.— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) December 11, 2018
Announced winner, Tom Byelick of Hammond, Ind., today.

Sign a contract. Wear the uniform. Be announced to the crowd. Take the field for the Nat Anthem.
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY-
Face a real batter from the opposing team with a REAL 1st PITCH that counts!https://t.co/gN4JyS989y pic.twitter.com/vXF5DvxJTq
