Rush Frontman Set to Throw the First Pitch at the Toronto Blue Jays Season Opener
You may not have known this, but Rush frontman Geddy Lee is a longtime baseball fan and a huge supporter of Toronto Blue Jays. He can often be spotted behind the homeplate during the team's home matches at the Rogers Centre and is a proud owner of the Blue Jays season ticket. And now, Lee was given the honor of throwing the ceremonial first pitch at their season opener on Tuesday, April 2 against the Cleveland Indians, marking the beginning of the team's 37th regular season. The frontman thinks we're in for a "fun season" and believes the Blue Jays have a solid chance of winning the world series. It looks like Lee is off to a good start this April, as he will also be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with his Rush bandmates Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart on April 18 ceremony in LA's Nokia Theater. Prog rock giants will be inducted by Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl who is also rumored to perform with the band during the ceremony. Apart from Rush, the list of this year's inductees includes blues icon Albert King, Public Enemy, Heart and Donna Summer. The ceremony is also set for a broadcast on HBO on May 18.
