Jamie throws out the first pitch before Phillies-Mets game

Jamie Foxx threw out the first pitch in a pregame ceremony that celebrated the 100th anniversary of Jackie Robinson’s birth at Monday’s series opener in Philadelphia.

Far from just a casual baseball fan, Foxx has participated in MLB All-Star events for seven years, and he was the voice of Robinson for a 2016 PBS four-hour documentary, in which he read excerpts from the former Brooklyn Dodger’s newspaper columns, personal letters and autobiographies.
