ROH issued the following press release on Thursday.
Ring of Honor Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion Jay Lethal will throw out the ceremonial first pitch Friday, May 6, prior to the American League Central Division leading Chicago White Sox hosting the Minnesota Twins at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago. Lethal will be live Tweeting from the game.
“We are so proud to be a part of Chicago White Sox baseball. Chicago has always been a great Ring of Honor city and now this honor. We are so appreciative to our combined legions of fans,” said Joe Koff, Chief Operating Officer of Ring of Honor Wrestling.
On Sunday, May 8, Lethal will defend his World Championship vs Chicago’s native son, Colt Cabana, in the main event of Ring of Honor Wrestling’s “Global Wars” PPV / iPPV. Cabana shook up the wrestling world last month when he made his surprise return to Ring of Honor Wrestling at Supercard of Honor, Day 1, after a five-year absence. The next day, after pinning Lethal in a non-title match, Ring of Honor Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness announced Lethal would have to defend his World Championship against Cabana at Global Wars in Cabana’s home town of Chicago, IL

Powell’s POV: After giving up 16 runs on Wednesday and starting the season 8-20, my disappointing Twins should sign Lethal if he can get the first pitch over the plate without a bounce.
