Misty May-Treanor first pitch goddess

New, comment

Earlier in the season Misty May-Treanor threw out the first pitch of a Cubs game.  Last night she continued her throwing the first strike honors in Anaheim .

May-Treanor threw out the first pitch before Wednesday night's Angels game against the A's. She is back in her hometown to play in the AVP Crocs Tour Cuervo Gold Crown Huntington Beach Open.

May-Treanor was an Olympic gold medalist with partner Kerri Walsh in 2004 and is a favorite to repeat in Beijing this summer. May-Treanor and Walsh are the current beach volleyball world champions. May-Treanor also has more tournament victories (75) than any other female player in AVP history. She and Walsh have won the first two AVP tournaments of the season.

May-Treanor is an Orange County native. She starred at Newport Harbor High School and played college volleyball at Long Beach State. She is married to Florida Marlins catcher Matt Treanor.

It kinda begs the question:  Has she ever thrown out the first pitch at a Marlins game?  And if not, why not?  She is obviously skilled or at least is experienced in doing so.
