First look: Holtz throws out Rays' first pitch



holtz-rays.jpgUSF football coach Skip Holtz made it to Tropicana Field in time to deliver the first pitch for Saturday's Rays game -- a strike I'm told -- after catching a quick flight from Vero Beach, where the Bulls held their first scrimmage of the preseason.

Holtz's post-scrimmage comments were cut off early so he could make the 45-minute flight across the state in time for the 4:10 first pitch. He's now dropped the puck for the Lightning and thrown out pitches for the Bulls, Yankees and Rays. Thanks to the Times' James Borchuck for taking this picture ...
