Navy Secretary Ray Mabus Knows a Thing or 30 About First Pitches
Ray Mabus, the secretary of the Navy since 2009, began throwing out first pitches to bring attention to the Navy and the Marine Corps. Now he is believed to be the only person to have thrown one at all 30 major league ballparks.
Mr. Mabus has long had an interest in baseball. The governor of Mississippi from 1988 to 1992 and later the United States ambassador to Saudi Arabia, he grew up rooting for the St. Louis Cardinals and played first base in high school.
