Hargrove to throw out first pitch at the Jake

2000-2003 Orioles manager Mike Hargrove, now back with the Indians as a special adviser, was tapped to throw out the first pitch at Cleveland's home opener on April 12 (story from the Cleveland Plain Dealer), marking the 10th anniversary of the opening of Jacobs Field.

He has told the press that he wants to manage again, creating the potential for tension between him and current Tribe manager Eric Wedge, but apparently the two have been friendly with each other throughout their time working together.

Despite his lack of success in Baltimore, Hargrove was always a stand-up guy, and it's hard to blame him for all the O's struggles during his tenure here. It's comforting to see him still in baseball and back with the Indians, the team with whom he has spent most of his career as a player and manager.
