TIM TAKES THE MOUND TONIGHT
Tim McGraw’s not changing careers, but he will throw out the first pitch at the game between the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies, Thursday night, June 15, in Philadelphia.
There’s a special reason behind Tim’s appearance. Tim will be accepting a check on behalf of the Tug McGraw Foundation, established by and named for Tim’s late father, from Phillies Charities. Tug pitched for both the Mets and Phillies during his major league career. The Tug McGraw Foundation raises funds to improve the quality of life for children and adults with brain tumors. Tug died from complications of brain cancer Jan. 5, 2004.
Later in the evening, Tim and wife Faith Hill will perform at the city’s Wachovia Center for a stop on their blockbuster “Soul2Soul II” Tour. They’ll also play the venue Friday night, June 16.
