Ken Burns lucks into opening pitch for historic game
Here's a nice bit of publicity for PBS's upcoming "Tenth Inning": Docmeister Ken Burns will toss the first pitch at the long-awaited debut game of Nationals phenom pitcher Stephen Strasburg, according to the Washington Post's D.C. Sports Blog. The date for Strasburg's first major league shifted several times, and luckily Burns had been scheduled to appear at Nationals Park on June 8. The game is sold out, although online resale sites have a few remaining tickets for up to $1,000. Yes, for one ticket.
