Come Watch Larry King Throw a Baseball

If you thought President Obama‘s opening pitch last season was weak, just wait till this 77-year-old takes the mound in an attempt to get a baseball across home plate.

Larry King is scheduled to throw out the first pitch at the Washington Nationals’ first weekend game of the season on Saturday against the Atlanta Braves. A portion of the proceeds from tickets purchased from this link for Saturday or Sunday’s game will benefit the Larry King Cardiac Foundation.

But if that isn’t enough Larry King for one day, the foundation will also hold a gala at the Ritz-Carlton at 6:30 on Saturday night. The evening will start with a silent auction, followed by dinner. Mary J. Blige will perform. Ticket prices range from $1,500 to a cool $200,000. You can buy those here.
