Frank Robinson’s first pitch

By Pablo Martinez Monsivais – AP.

Wearing No. 20, and to No. 20 behind the plate, Frank Robinson earned the biggest cheer of Wednesday’s pre-game introductions by throwing out the first pitch. Before the pitch he hugged Ryan Zimmerman; after the pitch he gave Ian Desmond (who wears his number) a tap on the chest.

The pitch, it was widely reported, was a strike.
