Warrick Dunn to throw out first pitch for Rays' Chop at the Trop game

Former Florida State and Bucs star running back Warrick Dunn will throw out the ceremonial first pitch on June 18 for the Rays' Chop at the Trop game.

Dunn was a three-time All-ACC talent and helped the Seminoles win their first national title in 1993. His 3,959 rushing yards are still the most in program history.

The Bucs drafted Dunn with the No. 12 overall pick in 1997. He made two Pro Bowls with the Bucs and spent six of his 12 NFL seasons with Tampa Bay.

Dunn's first pitch comes before the Rays host San Francisco at 4:10.
