Wednesday, March 30, 2011's Senior Editor Geoff Bilau received a call at lunch on Tuesday afternoon from his season seat rep asking if he wanted to throw out the first pitch in tonight's exhibition finale at Angel Stadium against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Apparently, whoever was supposed to throw the first pitch couldn't make it and they normally throw it out to the tickets reps to find a replacement.

They found a good one in Geoff Bilau -- a season ticket holder and faithful fan of the Angels for many years -- who makes sure to spend precious moments at the Big A throughout the season with his kids.

After Geoff threw the first pitch to Angels' farmhand David Carpenter, he had this to say.

It went almost exactly like so many other first pitches I've thrown in my 40 years ... high and outside. I didn't get to warm up at all and we spent 40 minutes down on the field waiting for 6:51 to roll around. I wanted to throw it harder, but when you only get one it's so hard not to play it safe.

All in all, it was just a really neat experience that was over almost as quickly as I got up there on that beautifully manicured mound.

Love to hear what you think!
